Bubbling with pride

This morning, at the Kinetic Urban Adventure, two of my Abu Dhabi Adventure Challenge (past and present) were also on the top of the podium. Christiaan (ADAC 2008) won the mixed pair category, with his partner Landie; and Alex (2009) won mixed team.

Chris has assembled an adventure racing team, Team Gijimas, from a squad of friends. Many were racing today and looking really smart in their team tees. They are also getting the adventure racing club scene going again in Pretoria (keep an eye on and the AR email group for notices of PTA evenings).

Alex has brought a number of friends into adventure racing and orienteering and he is building a good mixed team around himself.

Choosing teammates from a submitted application form is a tough call; but when I looked at both of these guys on the podium today I was very proud of what these two guys have accomplished and will accomplish in the years to come.
