2017-12-20T14:58:15+00:00April 24th, 2017|

Jacqui Allen - XTERRA Danao Race Report With temperatures up to a scorching 33°C , the XTERRA Danao triathlon was a grueling race on an unfamiliar course. Jacqui Allen started the event coming out of the 1.5km swim in 7th place. The next part of the course was a tiring 40km bike over rocky terrain, up punishing hill climbs, and through varied vegetation.  Usually bike sections are between 25-30km, but this one was an intense 40mk ride.  Combined with the intense heat and steep mountain climbs, this was a punishing course for the most seasoned of athletes. Jacqui started the second [...]

Red Industries sponsored Adrian Spencer of Adgespeed came in second place in the King of Epynt challenge.  Despite being disappointed not to have taken the title, it's still a great result for Adrian to have come second out of the 34 drivers that took part in the competition.
