Race Report: Calen Hastie – Warrior #7

Meerandal has got to be one of my favorite race venues in the series. There were some minor course changes this year which gave the race a fantastic twist. From the start, I fell directly into 3rd place running alongside Ricardo Rebelo. After completing the first section we returned back to the race village where there was some confusion in the course. From then on I managed to pull a gap on the rest but could not catch the front-runner. I continued racing hard during the second section on a switchback single track. On entering the race village area with the final few obstacles I managed to close the gap with the lead runner but was unable to overtake JP in the final obstacles. I managed to finish in a solid second place with a large gap on the 3rd and 4th runner-ups.

I would like to give a big thank you to the sponsors, Toyota, for this great opportunity to race and perform at all the different events.  I would also like to thank all the supporting sponsors as well as the Nevarest team for all their support. We are in high anticipation of performing at the Nationals in November at Riversands.
