The Gaspesie International Raid : MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

164 racers from 13 countries were present on the starting line of the third edition of the Gaspesie International Raid,

in Carleton-sur-Mer, on September 8th, 2016. At the end of these 4 days of race, sometimes under the sun but mostly

under the rain, it is with a smile on the face that 67 teams out of the 70 initially registered teams crossed the finish line. 

At the end of Day 3, team Azimut Espresso Sport (Lyne Bessette/Dany Déry-Chamberland/Benoit
Simard/Martin Hardy) (6 :01 : 20) preceded by few minutes the leaders of Estonian ACE Adventure
(Timmo et Joosep Tammemäe) (6 :11 :30). In the third place, team Dynafit/SkiMoEast.com (George
Visser/Jeff Rivest/Patrick Lussier/Évelyne Blouin) (6 :19 :15) continued to reduce the distance with
the leading teams, finishing 8 minutes behind the Estonians.
 
Overall, after 4 days of race, the Estonians are the big winners of the 300 K this year with a total time
of 22 :32 :21. In second position come team Azimut Espresso Sport, only 5 minutes behind (1) with a
time of 22 :37 :56, and in third place, Dynafit/SkiMoEast.com after 24 :35 :12 of race.
 
At the 150 K, Paysage Navigue.com (Marc-André Toupin, Benoit Poirier, Jean-Sébastien Babin/Louis-Gabriel
Pinard) finished once again in the first place (4 :40 :04), followed by the Raideurs matinales (Jean-François
et Sébastien Richard, Luc Sévigny, Serge Denis) that are, however, out of race as they lost a member during
the week-end (4 :49 :12), and by the teams Intersport Carleton (Keith Sexton, Joël Poirier) (5 :04 :27) and
the female duet Rhéal Pitre Sport/Clinique vétérinaire de la Baie (Audrey Bastien/Marianne Desrosiers)
(5 :07 :50).
 
Overall, after 4 days of race, for the 150 K, we find in first and second position Paysage Navigue.com (16 :53 :23),
Intersport Carleton (19 :04 :37), and in third position, Rhéal Pitre Sport/Clinique vétérinaire de la Baie (19:46:14)
