One calvary scout team flips a tire while another team takes on the ropes during the inaugural Gainey Cup competition at Fort Benning, Ga., March 1-5, 2013. The five-day event tested 20 five-man teams on cavalry scout skills such as day and night fires, weapons familiarization, area reconnaissance, and observation post establishment. It also tested their physical endurance with multi-phased road marches, obstacle courses and a multi-event physical fitness test that included not only the standard push-ups and sit-ups but also pull ups, dips, bench press, rope climb, tire flip, and pushing a Humvee up an incline.
