Pursuit teams are heading on a different route today as their mountain bike course veers north. Pursuiters leave TA3 and complete a slighter longer navigation through the Rowallan Forest with additional checkpoints before heading towards Monowai. It is here the teams go in different directions with Pure Teams heading left and over the Borland to Percy Saddle and West Arm. Pursuit teams ride straight through to Lake Manapouri and on to Supply Bay where they transition to trekking over Hearts Hill to Brod Bay. From there the Pursiters will kayak a short distance across Lake Te Anau to the Marakura Yacht Club ready for that cold Altitude beer and hot Jimmys Pie.
