So yesterday we let you in suspense…and don’t worry today was again a great day for the 2 Thule adventure teams!!!!
We did it again, and both with have won our day…and it means both we are the Champions of the Taining Challenge 2013:)
“Encore une fois” for the male team, it was an easy day and won the stage with 5 min…it’s not fair!!! Because this morning, for us it was tricky with only 24sec in the lead.
We started with 39km of mtb, at this moment we didn’t know if our adversaries would like to try or not but we can promise after 100m the Ussher’s team attacked. So the war was declared!!! We stayed with them until the first climbing and we managed to create a first gap. Elina crashed and the rear derailleur broke. So we arrived at the rest area with 8 min, and this was so good!!!:)
The second part was the paddling section in the river and more exactly in the gorges, it was awesome. We can enjoy this part because it was technical and you have to read the river, so we knew it would be to difficult for them to catch us. The level of the river was low, so for a light team it’s better. And the end of this paddling, of course we checked in our back, just to be sure…and nobody…so we could really appreciate all our last trail run and flying fox. We crossed the finish line 10 min before the 2nd team, so the end of the story, you know now.
So for the second year, we won this good event and don’t worry we will be present next year;)
Now let’s go for our bike trip with our Pack’n Pedal from Thule, firs, around Urumqi (chinese desert) for 5 days and after in Tawaïn to cross the island.
See you soon and Have a nice day
