"We didn’t know so much about the different legs until 2 days before race start when we got the logistic planner. After that we could pack our gear and energy for the different legs in the boxes and bags provided by the organization", says Jonas. The course: Trek 5 km, kayak 28 km, trek 6 km, kayak 15 km, MTB 89 km, trek 59 km, MTB 97 km, trek+rope 4 km, kayak 25 km, trek 18 km, MTB 123 km, trek 48 km. "We didn’t expect to take the lead in the beginning, we just wanted to go in our own pace but it soon became clear that we had a bit higher speed than the others as we took the lead of the pack", -Jonas Jonas and team wears the MBT Speed for this race. "They keep well, and they have a stiffer sole, that’s makes them perfect for the race. The shoes are gentler to use than other shoes. I feel so comfortable in them and they are so incredibly gentle for the feet. So, I used them all the way. The slightly harder and rounded sole is really great when you have some packing and you have to move as many hours as we do. They really are amazing!" -Jonas Photos: SKYLOTEC, Andreas StrandView
