First place!!

Today Daniel won his first victory in a trail race! He competed in the Ruta del Condor, a 48km race from Cajon del Maipo over the mountains back to Santiago. He overtook the leader in the last 10km to win the race in 4h54min.

Smiling near the top of the climb

Winding road up the mountain

Happy at the finish line with his new sponsored backpack!

Top three finishers: Patrick (3rd), Daniel (1st) and Max (2nd)

Daniel said it was a tough race - lots of climbing and a brutal descent - but all I saw were the smiles at the end! What a great job!
