After two brutal days, racing 153km over some of most gruelling terrain Wanaka in New Zealand has to offer, it was the local pairing of Braden Currie and Dougal Allan that took the open elite honours and $10,000 at Red Bull Defiance today. They blitzed second place getters Team Peak Adventure (AUS) by 34 minutes, with a final time of 12:58:24. Day two of Defiance saw the 80 strong field starting in pristine conditions, with blue sky and light winds on the early morning sprint into Wanaka for the first transition into kayak. There were three teams that broke free of the field in the paddle down the Clutha River, but it was Currie and Allan that took the lead into the Peugeot clay bird shooting stage. They continued to lead the pack on the 28km mountain bike up the Pisa Range, and never looked back as they conquered the 25km run into home over Mount Alpha and Roys Peak.
