That other big race down in South America is still going on, but it’s not easy getting updates on the Patagonia Expedition Race. The teams are still making there way across the 700km cource in some of the most remote regions on Earth.
As of yesterday, the standing looked like this: TSL Outdoors La Clusaz of France still leads the way, followed by Camelos on the Rocks from Brazil, and Grado Monterrey of Mexico in Third. These three teams have ruled the leaderboard all week at this event, and the French have pretty much lead wire to wire. It seems like it’s their race to lose at this point, so we’ll just have to see if they can hang on, and finish strong.
You can find brief race updates here, but be warned, they offer little details on what is actually happening out on the course.
