Limelime is the reserve member of the Limers. He has competed in Marble League 2018, Marble League Showdown 2019, and Marbula One Season 1.

HistoryEdit

Limelime joined the Limers for Marble League 2018 as their reserve member. The Limers were invited to the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers draw and were surprised to see that their rivals from the times of the Fruit Circuit, the Raspberry Racers, had also qualified, and they both ended up in the same qualification group. The Limers managed to beat their rivals in the Curling and Halfpipe events, and still qualified for Marble League 2018 in 4th, behind the Raspberry Racers who qualified in 2nd, with only 1 point between them. The team had another poor season, gaining no points in one quarter of the events, and only managed top half finishes in one third of the events.

By the end of Event 7, the Snow Rally, the team had been in last place after all but three of the events. It was clear they would not win the competition, but the Limers were still determined to not come last. Sublime was selected to take part in Event 8, the Snowboard Cross. He came second in his heat, behind Rozzy of the Raspberry Racers, and then won the final, gaining the team their first gold medal of any Marble League event.

The team managed to finish in the middle of the pack in all the remaining events, except for a last place finish in Event 11, Ice Hockey. The Limers managed to finish in 14th, finishing ahead of fellow Fruit Circuit team Mellow Yellow on medals. However, the team was more concerned with the fact that their rivals, the Raspberry Racers, had beaten them in all but two events.

The Limers continued to face their rivals in the offseason, coming 2nd and beating the Raspberry Racers in the 100 Meter Water Race and coming 4th and losing to them in the Amazing Maze Marble Race. The Limers had put in a bid to host Marble League 2019, but lost to the Oceanics. This, along with the losses to their rivals, led to a drop in morale.

The team had a great start to the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers, coming in second after the second event. However, they only managed to come 12th in the third event, and a 19th place finish in the Underwater Race and the Chocolatiers' 4th place finish meant the Limers failed to qualify for Marble League 2019 by three points. Their time in the qualifiers was also soured by Limers fans throwing debris onto the track during the Relay Race to allegedly try and disrupt the Raspberry Racers. Team Primary did not finish the race and blamed it on the Limers fans' debris.

When the Marble League Showdown 2019 was announced, the Limers immediately started training again, trying to rebuild emotionally, physically and mentally, once again returning to the cliffs of Tartufo to train. They came into the Showdown under immense pressure after their rivals, the Raspberry Racers, had won Marble League 2019.

The Showdown went poorly for the Limers, coming last in two of the events, including Limelime's last place finish in the Funnel Race, and staying in last place overall throughout the entire competition. When their failure to qualify for the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers was confirmed during the final event, Balancing, some Limers fans stormed onto the field in anger and the team had to be escorted off the pitch by security for their safety.

The team was visibly devastated at this point. They were in their worst shape and would have to miss out on Marble League 2020. The resilience of the team came through when they accepted an invite to Marbula One Season 1, choosing Sublime and Limelime to represent them.[1]

The team once again had a disappointing showing in Marbula One, placing 15th in the rankings. Limelime scored most of the points for his team, however it was not enough to do well. The Limers prepared for Marble League Showdown 2020 as they would not be appearing in Marble League 2020.
