  • 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.

  • 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.
