We managed to win the final stage today by 2.3 seconds. After a crazy downhill sprint for about 3km running, on single tracks and partly trackless rain forest. We caught up with Team NZ Adventure on top of a mountain, they had put a gap on us during cycling as we stopped for water which might have been decisive for today as it was super hot. In the end we won by over 23min to them. We see this as our best performance so far in stage racing. There is most likely no other team as Good as this: dual Coast To Coast champion from this year (solo World Championships in multsport) (Jess Simson and Braden Currie) and the other two (Dougal Allen and Brad’s brother Glen) also very deserving. We have long dreamed that we will be able to beat the best in the world also in stage racing and just today we did it….just.
