Newly crowned World Champs (Adventure Racing) in blueseventy.

Team Helly Hansen - Prunesco, Using blueseventy wetsuits and fueled by nuun hydration recently won the world adventure racing championships. Nick Gracie sent us this comment.

"Dear all, after 7 years of hard work, some great race results and a number of disappointments Team Helly Hansen - Prunesco (Tom Gibbs, Warren Bates, Nicola Macleod and Nick Gracie) have become Adventure Race World Champions. After a weeks tough racing in Portugal, lasting 6 days 5 of those non-stop and covering close to 900 KM we pushed ourselves to the limits and won what has been classed the most competitive World Championships to date.

In a sport that has been dominated by the US team Nike and super strong kiwi teams we were the first British team to become world champions and only the second European team.

I would like to thank you all for your support and friendships over the year. Getting to this level has involved making a number of sacrifices in order to put in the hours required to train properly, but now the 9 years of hard work has paid off and its an incredible feeling"

Picture shows Nicola Macleod wearing her Helix across the finish line due to the fact that in her last stage swim transition she removed all her clothes and realized she had no leg covering with her. Comfortable in the transition as it is in the water.

Congratulation to the team from us all at blueseventy.
