On Saturday 17th just gone, team Netrent Commercial comprising Sales & Leasing’s Thor Harrison & Tristan Taylor (former World’s triathlete) competed at Beerburrum’s White Horse Mountain in the Kathmandu Adventure Race Series QLD round.
In deplorable conditions involving slushy mud, torrential rain, and swarms of mosquitoes, the guys started out strong in the run leg collecting 5 of 7 checkpoints and reaching the bike transition in 2nd place behind team Mountain Design.
During the bike leg, where flat tyres and broken suspension became a limiting factor, they slipped back but still stayed competitive in the following run, kayak, and bike legs.
They overcame cramps, hydration, and energy dilemmas to cross the line in 3hrs 55minutes – 3rd place in the mens category and 5th overall, slightly bettering the 4th/7th of 2011.
