I think it starts before they are born, pick a wife with some athletic ability, not to tall, and embraces adrenaline sports sort of joking, sort of lol

Thinking it will be cat and mouse, eli will stay close and put a charge late in the moto, but if one gets a much better start than the other imagine they will try to check out.
