Quantum Leap 2012: Capestorm WCAD Racing

The inaugural Quantum Leap 250km Adventure Race as experienced by team Capestorm WCAD Racing. This event was hosted by Ugene Nel of Quantum Adventures on 22-25 August 2012 in the Oorlogskloof area 300km North of Cape Town, South Africa. The 250km race course was extremely challenging in terms of navigation and terrain and tested everyone who took part.

Unfortunately Team Capestorm WCAD Racing had to withdraw from the race during the final MTB leg after a harrowing ordeal on top of the mountain in a storm left Chris Fisher with Pneumonia. The team will be back next year to finish what they started!!!

Thanks to Ugene and his team for staging such an Epic event. The course was hugely researched and treated competitors to some incredible scenery and historical Khoi San site alike, not forgetting an awesome rafting leg on the Doring River.

The race was won by Merrell Adventure Addicts in 63h13m.
