The most challenging part of this year’s Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race 2011 was the 150km of trail-less trekking in the wilderness of Chilean Patagonia. The trekking route was split into two sections. The teams had to fight their way through forests and bushes. The second sectioned was shortened by 114km after rain turned the forests into treacherous slippery obstacle courses, covered rock faces with endless waterfalls and, crucially, caused rivers to rise to the point where the course became un-navigable.<br><br />

The start of the 2011 Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race proved tough but spectacular as extreme winds (100 km/h!!) blew competitors over on the opening bike section, whipped up the water in Rio Gray but helped to blow away the clouds and clear the Torres massif to create a picture postcard day in Torres del Paine National Park.<br /> The teams soon spread apart along the 60km route as the leaders raced methodically, drafting to protect themselves from the wind. Others struggled and were forced to dismount and walk.<br><br />

Strong winds also caused havoc in the second stage, a 47 kilometre kayaking leg down the Grey and Serrano rivers to the base of the massive Monte Balmaceda. Race organizers, Nomadas Outdoor Services were forced to delay the start of this section as a result of the high winds.<br /> In addition to making the conditions particularly challenging physically, the wind has also caused some equipment problems, including gear problems and a kayak rudder failure.<br><br />
