Adventure Racing 75:00:00  450.0 km (10:00 / km)
Long, hard, but a good experience. Very sore now...
So after lots of team mate drama, I teamed up with Paul Bothma. In the end it worked very well. No pressure going into the race. And he was stronger than me most of the way.
Navigation was hit and miss. I was frustrated on the 1st day about how silly it was not having anything on the map and control circles in the middle of nowhere. Usually there were roads connecting the points. At briefing Darron said "The road you want is probably the one you are on". So it became a case of bearings, checking distance and calculated guesses.
We fooled ourselves into thinking stage 5 would be short to have us done by 18h00 on Sunday. So we pushed hard on stage 4. I think most of my soreness is from that run. Turns out that stage 5 was over 24 hours and a monster.
2 hours of good sleep and 3 or 4 15 min naps.
Sugar control was good. No lows which is amazing. But a few readings higher than I'd like. I guess its a tradeoff.
So in the end we were the 2nd pair and I think 3rd overall.
Raced quite a lot with Red Ants towards the end.
