slide21This weekend finally sees an opportunity for us a race as a team together at “The RAID”.  Our Costa Rica Team gets an opportunity to race over the Sperrins which are the largest and least explored mountain range in Northern Ireland. With some of Ireland’s most spectacular and stunning scenery as a backdrop, and although the weather isn’t looking to be anything like the swelter we will get in Costa, it’s the perfect location for the Causeway Coast Crew to give us another great weekends racing. With 2 international Teams competing, Skandia Adventure Team and Team Merrell Denmark , a bunch of strong local teams along with our friends the Moxie Racers, its going to be a cracking race up front middle and back. We look forward to the rope section happy to see no swim section and with some excellent new trails now available the long bike sections are sure to provide a challenge.  With the drip feeding of Maps and the raw terrain of the sperrins, route choice is going to be a major factor guaranteeing us the challenge we need !!!
