Jaguar's Mark Webber has completed his ten-days of cycling, hiking and kayaking around Tazmania in aid of cancer charities. The 600 mile event started on November 7th on the West coast and tracked round the island to finish on the Freycinet Peninsular.
"This has been a brilliant event," said Webber. "It has been run in great spirit through some absolutely stunning locations and for a great cause. It has been about much more than just covering miles -- we could have done a similar distance on road bikes in half the time, but that wasn't the point."
"The Challenge put us through days where we could cover only one or two kilometres in an hour because the terrain was so difficult. Those were the moments where we really started to find out what we were made of. It has been an incredible experience."
Webber's teammates were endurance athlete Bernie Shrosbree from the UK and former Australian iron man champion Guy Andrews.
