Deep athletic thinkers claim tough Hells Bells win
TEAM Thought Sports secured victory in a gruelling Hells Bells adventure race and also wrapped up the sought-after overall A1 Series title at the weekend.
The visiting team of Kathryn Preston, Peter Preston, Tim Boote and Angus Rodwell weren’t the first over the line, but they managed to find more checkpoints than most to claim victory.
Second was the Coast all-female Mountain Designs Wild Women team of Kim Beckinsale, Elizabeth Dornom, Cass Percival and Ali Wright.
Third was team Everyday Life Fitness/Tiger AR.
In the half-distance Fairy Bells, Stephen Porter and Adam McKane of Noosa Shallow Watermen claimed a five-second win over Jeremy Tibbits and Damian Andrew of Dad Can Read Maps with a sprint finish. Only one minute behind were Tri Adventure Vintage (Jan Leverton and Shan McGrath) and Tri Adventure AR (Abbey Anderson and Rick Anderson).
