The Underdog is a product of the talents of a few young Middlebury College graduates. They believe in the power of a good beer after a hard day's work, old-school funk music and coveralls. 

Tommy "Wildman" Hyde


Tommy Graduated from Middlebury College in 2014. Doug was the subject of the very first video he produced as a student and he's thrilled to bring the experience he has gained over the years back to this original story. When he's not up to his knees in cow manure, he likes traveling absurd distances to go surfing and re-watching the Big Lebowski.

Bjorn "Bjornicorn" Peterson


Bjorn graduated from Middlebury with a degree in Architectural Studies. As an off-kilter creative mind he's excited to explore the interplay between graphic design and film. He has high hopes that his chubby daushchund, Bogart, will make Doug's championship team.

Tito "Romeo" Heiderer

Music and Sound

Tito Heiderer is a musician and composer and fellow Middlebury graduate. Tito knows Doug and his story well from his years in Vermont, cheering on the team from the sidelines of many races. When not writing or recording music, Tito enjoys the finer things in life, such as Egyptian silk briefs and Vermont Sour Appletinis.


Doug really likes nicknames. He gives one to just about everyone he meets. We've listed our own here because Doug, "The Boss Man," insisted on it.
