Here’s an insider’s account of the September 2004 X-Adventure race in Kalbarri, Western Australia. The
race described is
the final stage of the 2004 X-Adventure Raid Series, a 130-mile endurance race across the rolling sand plains,
river gorges, and pristine beaches of Western Australia’s Kalbarri National Park. The X-Adventure Raid Series is as
close as you can get to the professional tour. Brad Pennington, captain of Team Qantas, talks about what how nasty,
brutish and long the race can be.
