2021 Yepao Recap

Extremely pleased this happened all considered and very lucky with the weather, air and everything else. Some serious climbs, some challenging downhills, too much food, not nearly enough photographs, and a great adventure through a well marked course in rural Anhui! Lessons learned, improvements to be made and looking forward to the 2022 Challenge Series. Details to be announced soon.

Very Well done to the challenge and award winners and many thanks to our partners for the great prizes.

2021 Fastest Female: YipingG – 5h58m – 27km (new course record)

2021 Fastest Male: PedroM 4h08m – 27km (new course record)

Hoka provided some great shoes and Wildhomestay some free weekend & Tanqi cycling experiences.

Adidas provided some great trail running bags for segment prizes.

The Clinic provided some recovery treatments and sports tests.

Also thanks to Norbu Naturals for their wonderfully fresh jerky and Namedsport for their hydration mixes along with Therabody for their recovery aids.

A big shout out to Leigh for all the great organisation and a special thanks to Peter & Vincent.
