14 international teams started to master the world’s hardest adventure race - Wenger the Patagonian Expedition Race, but only 6 were able to cross the finish line!
The extreme multi sport race proved to be one of the toughest and most spectacular in its history as weather conditions turned from sparkling sunshine in Torres del Paine to heavy rain in the western fjords. The heavy rain forced a section of the course to be cancelled and swollen rivers saw three teams airlifted over an impassable part of the course.
This year’s race involved a total of 248km of mountain biking, 150km of trail-less trekking and 105km of river and sea kayaking in the wilderness of Chilean Patagonia.
British team adidasTERREX/Prunesco manages the impossible and completes a hat-trick of victories, winning the race for the third consecutive time!
Us team Gearjunkie.com finishes 2nd by taking risky short-cuts including swimming in freezing cold waters or free climbing rocks. The 3rd place goes to French team Vaucluse Adventure Evasions, followed by Ad Natura – Karibu from Croatia, EastWind from Japan and Perdido in el Turbal (USA & UK)!
