This weekend we participated in the Stockholm Extreme, which this year was hosted by Swedish Adventure Racing Championship. We have many top teams in Sweden so we knew it would be tough. The race began with a prologue on 3x20min, with Park orienteerong, SUP, military obstacle course and regular orienteering. We did a good prologue were second only seconds after the young team from Karlstad, team Outdoor Experten. Then started a night stage in the evening where we did not do so well away from us, we were really out of sync and had some material problems etc. Nightstage ended shortly after midnight. Then it was chasing start at 5 am, so we had about 4h in tent before. Since we were 4th and 49 minutes after we started 5:49. We then made a good second day. It started with a long Swimrun, where we took in a few minutes. Then we started mountainbike and where it went away. We took in 20min at leading teams and all the two teams that lay before us. Then a short orientateering followed by a long cycling and a long paddle to the finish. We was supriced when the young promising team Outdoorexperten came up with us, but then we responded and went finished two minutes ahead of them. The winner was the team new Swedish Armed Forched team, which is an amalgamation of some of the best / strongest athlethes from FJS, Axa, and Sweco!
