We were thrilled that a Team Nike was willing to race in our first annual Adventure Sports Week. They instantly became the favourites.
But the team, led by Mike Kloser, seemed on day 1 to be cursed. (Or sabotaged, as I joked.)
Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong.

They had far too much Adventure, not enough Race.
Happily, The Crux and The Crucible Adventure Race this weekend in gorgeous northern Idaho is 2 long days of 13-14hrs.
Nike got out to a better start this morning, day 2, at 6AM. Trail run, lake swim, portage, kayak …
No disasters, so far.
I suspect by late Sunday night they will have found a way to win. Despite all the setbacks.
I’ll update this post with results after the race.
