Sunday 12th October - Lake of Salagou. Around 50 km from Montpellier, (France); the Orient Raid started with 65 teams in the adventure and 35 teams in the elite circuit. Being in the elite circuit, Buff® Coolmax® Extreme Raid Team began the competition of 85 km course in red rock terrain on bicycle and continued after 14 km of ride in their kayaks; a race of pure orientation in the fantastic locations of Lake Salagou.

Buff® Coolmax® Team have won the 2nd edition of the Orient Raid, being the 4th victory of the year.

The Team has also participated at the Adventure Racing World Championship – Ecomotion Pro, which has taken place in Brazil – Ceará, Piauí, Maranhão - from October 30th to November 9th. In 2005 and 2007 the team won the ARWC being at position 1#. Again this year, elite teams from all around the world competed for the 1st place in a 700 km course and experienced highest level of adventure racing; a competition that is one of the biggest expedition races ever in Brazil, with disciplines such as Mountain Trek / Run, Ropework, Navigation, Mountain Biking, River Kayak, Sea Kayak and Sailing. In a challenging environment and under extreme hot weather conditions Buff® Coolmax® Extreme Raid Team finished the race being at position #11 among 60 international teams.

The team commented: “The team went to Brazil with motivation and confidence. This year, the race was in a really hot place with 45°C, so we knew before the race that we have to manage sleep, food and in addition the hot temperature, but that was ok. During the race we faced problems with the map and resulted errors in orientation. But anyway we enjoyed the race and the team has done a real good Team Work until the finish line.”

Their performance results this year:

Raid de l’Archipel (Agde) 23rd March : Arrived position #3
Raid des Drailles du Clos Gaillard (Nîmes) 13th April : Arrived position #1
Raid Aubanel (Gorges de l’Herault) 27th April : Arrived position #1

Orient Raid (Lac du Salagou) 14th October: Arrived position #1
Adventure Racing World Championship (Brazil) 9th November: Arrived position #11

Currently they are preparing the last world cup of 2008 in Portugal which will take place from 29th November to 4th December.

In such demanding and exhausting competitions under extreme conditions, the team’s competition activewear clothing is made with Coolmax® fabrics, meeting their needs and providing to the athletes maximum evaporative cooling, keeping them dry & cool and maximizing their strength, allowing them to fully concentrate on the competition. Coolmax® fabric is made from specifically engineered fibres with a fouror six-channel cross-section, giving an increased surface area. These high-tech fibres transfer the moisture quickly to the textile surface and ensure that it evaporates fast, thereby helping to maintain a balanced body temperature.

We congratulate the team on their outstanding performances in Lake Salagou and Brazil and wish them good luck on their next challenge in Portugal.
