Espresso 2008

Posted on 31 Aug 2008 | 0 comments

Jon races with Pete, Joe and Jo in team Woop Woop and Jude joins Troye, Clayton and Ian in team Adamantium. It’s cold again, but the sun does make an appearance during most of the race. Woop Woop can’t run due to injuries and also Adamantium is not able to move as fast as they want due to some unfortunate chafing for Ian…

After nearly 24hrs Adamantium crossed the finish line before Woop Woop as they had to ride the last hiking leg due to those chafing issues, but finished 6th overall. Woop Woop finished not much later taking up 5th overall.

  • stage 1 – trek 11km
  • stage 2 – kayak 16km
  • stage 3 – trek 18km
  • stage 4 – mountain bike 18km
  • stage 5 – trek 11km
  • stage 6 – mountain bike 25km
  • stage 7 – trek 13km
  • stage 8 – kayak 17km
  • stage 9 – trek 2km

Team Adamantium finished 6th, but that depends of course all on the question if team Woop Woop punched that 8th control on the first metrogaine… 😉
