  • Expedition Africa 2017 Race Day 2

    A very chilly yet absolutely stunning canyon greeted the tired and the already cold yesterday morning. Many teams raced through the night to reach Transition 5 late last on Monday night in order to tackle the  dark zone leg at 04h00 this morning.
    The top five teams reached Transition 6 with plenty of time to refuel and rest before their early start. Skylotec Adventure and East Wind were the first teams in the canyon this morning closely followed by Thunderbolt AR.
    More than half the field managed to race through the buffalo 'dark zone' before the zones shutdown commenced at 18h00 this evening.  All teams between CP 17 and CP 21 had to setup camp at their exact spot, and were not allowed to move until 06h45 this morning.
    To ensure the safety of all teams racing Expedition Africa, race organiser; Stephan Muller created the dark zone as a safety precaution, as athletes racing at night would not be able to see the buffalo in the area, which could create an extremely hazardous situation. 
    Team Skylotec Adventure were charged by buffalo  when passing through the same area. The marshals and ECPTA have been roaming the area, and managed to intercept the chase with their vehicle, ensuring the safety of the team. 
    Marshals are on course patrolling the area, providing an element of safety to all teams within the zone.
  • Expedition Africa 2017 Race Day 3

    After navigating through an almost non existent bike trail, the top teams Transitioned to Kayaks after first abseiling back across the river. A short run along the beach and then back on the bikes for a marathon leg. This is day 3 of Expedition Africa 2017
  • Expedition Africa 2017 Race Day 4

    Skylotec Adventure crossed the finish line completing the 514km Expedition Africa - Baviaans course in just over 80 hours. The team proved they were world class throughout the race, flying through each transition efficiently, professionally and navigating each control point brilliantly.
    Skylotec Adventure, Thunderbolt, East Wind and Nevarest Jabberwock have raced brilliantly gaining an advantageous lead on the rest of the teams. Skylotec Adventure and Thunderbolt AR were neck-and-neck throughout Day 3 until Thunderbolt AR experienced some navigational difficulties during their 123km cycle leg last night
    Both teams suffered a one hour penalty after transitioning through T11. Skylotec Adventure and Thunderbolt AR left the beach at Jeffery's Bay and continued along the road to the Transition area, instead of approaching the transition area via the beach as specified in the race booklet. 
    Skylotec Adventure chose to sleep during their penalty hour and were fast out of the transition just as Thunderbolt AR arrived. They completed the final 48km trekking leg through the famous Chokka Trail dune fields in less than 10 hours. 
    " The organisation was top quality, and what a beautiful race! The Canyon was definitely a highlight, and seeing the Buffalo up close like that was incredible, I wanted to see them" shares Malin Hjalmarsson of Skylotec Adventure soon after crossing the finish line.
    Skylotec Adventure will now represent Sweden at the Adventure Racing Word Champs in Wyoming at the Cowboy Tough in August this year.
  • Expedition Africa 2017 Race Day 5

  • From the Race Director : Skylotec Adventure Penalty

    During Expedition Africa 2017, Skylotec Adventure gave an excellent performance to take a well-deserved first place. No-one, however, has a perfect race. 

    At TA7, teams received maps for the upcoming leg, on which they had to copy CPs from a master map. Skylotec forgot to do this. 

    At TA8, Skylotec discovered their mistake. Captain Jonas Andersson chose to run back to retrieve the information, but made two mistakes:
    - he went alone, thereby contravening the rule requiring all team members to stay within a specific proximity
    - he failed to take his backpack, which contained compulsory kit

    For each of these mistakes, the team was awarded a 1hr penalty. 

    Fortunately for Skylotec Adventure, these two hours were not enough to affect their podium position, and Expedition Africa is pleased that they retain the honour they richly deserve.

    Race Director Stephan Muller followed protocol in holding a meeting with all members of Skylotec Adventure to explain this decision, and give them the opportunity to respond. The meeting was recorded on video, for future reference. 

    The matter was satisfactorily resolved for all parties, and Kinetic Gear Hopes to see Skylotec Adventure at future editions of Expedition Africa.

    We couldn't possibly end off EA2017 without first thanking two very special people. Heidi and Stephan Muller put their heart and souls into EA every year and based on the feedback from our finishers, this year was no exception. Thank you for everything you do for this sport and we look forward to many more events based on the same commitment and passion. #itsallaboutlove

  • Expedition India 2017 Highlights

    What a spectacular event Expedition India 2017 has been. Incredible India didn't disappoint as both Competitors and Crew were treated to a visual spectacle of epic proportions. A tough and challenging course meant many teams would not cross the finish line with all team members in tow or having collected all the checkpoints. This however was of no significance according to the teams as the Journey they had embarked on almost 2 weeks ago had already exceeded all their expectations and delivered far and beyond what they could have hoped for. Congratulations to all teams that competed in this landmark event. A big Congratulations to team KeyHealth/Jabberwock as they crossed the line first and lifted "Bob 2", the first official Indian Adventure race trophy...
