In this, the fourth instalment of the ‘Davis Winter Olympics', the competition heated up as the teams took to the road behind the living quarters for the ‘quad luge’ event. In this event, each team nominated a driver whose task it was to steer a quad with its engine off (and in neutral) as far as possible along a marked route, propelled only by the forceful pushing of their teammates from behind the starting line.
Limbering up at the commencement of the competition in the early afternoon of last Saturday, competitors and spectators alike were ‘treated’ to the vision of Mr Chris G sauntering out of the living quarters in a St Andrew’s cross inspired blue lycra morph suit. Comfort and warmth being sacrificed for aero-dynamicism, Chris took to the course, achieving a respectable fifth place.
Whilst all the teams finished within a matter of inches from each other, the out and out winner was the sparkies who edged out in front (and had track officials inspecting their quad for an electric motor).
Congrats to the sparkies and, thanks to the diesos and Chris for organising the event. Stay tuned next week for the last installment of winter olympics action.
