Rousing welcome for locals Team Motueka
Wednesday 6th April 2016
A rousing welcome for Team Motueka saw over 300 people gather on Kaiteriteri beach to see the team cross the finish line tonight just on 9pm.
Brent Steinmetz, Jake Stow, Claire Skykes and Mark Rayward were swamped by supporters as they were handed a cold bottle of Moa and shook the race directors hands.
Local multipart legend Nathan Fa’avae who assisted with course design for Chapter 5 was on the finish line and introduced the team to the waiting crowd.
“Its been the most incredible journey and I could not have found anyone better than the three people standing here beside me to do it with,” Brent Said. “I have always wanted to do a race like this since I was a kid it s a dream come true.”
