Part 2 of The Starboard Reunion Race Tour 2012, took place on a lake in the Eastern part of Reunion Island; situated with a backdrop of the higher mountain le “piton des neiges”, which rises 3070m. A beautiful place where everybody, tourists and families, were able to admire the sportsmen racers.
Approximately 40 people participated for this edition. A growing number proving once again that the sport is taking over little by little. The level is growing fast and for this round there were 4 runs: 1 sprint of 1200m and 3 runs of 5km.
The races were very engaging and hard in terms of heart frequency. It is almost 4 sprint races in a row with only an average of one hour in between each run. At the end of this beautiful day of sport , the favorites came out ahead, even after some new young guns came out and created a surprise.
