A Message In The Night
Sunday 4th March 2018
Race HQ received a message from one of the leading Pursuit teams during the night with a warning for others.
Team 87 Worst Pace Scenario were thinking of their fellow teams when they used their yellow brick tracker at 5am to advise HQ that the route they had chosen to trek down the Wairaurahiri River to CP 16 (not the prescribed one in the competitor course book) was not going well.
…………….WE ARE OK stop SLOW BUSH stop ETA 48HRS stop OTHER PURSUIT TEAMS WILL STRUGGLE! stop…………..
Little did they know that team 85 Lincoln Reunion was well down the track taking the advised route with team 97 Marlborough Tuataras and team 81 Turiwhate following suit. Will the ‘Worst Pacers’ get out of their route quandary!
