The boys did well, very well.
In fact they were the only non professional team to finish. Believe us when we say this was one of the hardest endurance races in the world.
Take the last day for instance. In 2006, the previous last day distances had been a grueling 76km – this was considered pretty tough. At the race meeting on the last morning this year, the race organiser (‘Dr. Pain’ as he was known) announced that the last day’s race distance to be a staggering 120km over some pretty intense terrain. This would turn out to take a sleep deprived, hallucinating 46 hours to complete. Unbelievable (and the new kit did really well) and many congratulations to the four. Will get more updates as they come through.
