The Adidas Terrex Prunesco team continues to lead the Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race in its sixth day of competition, on its journey through the barren landscapes of southern Chile.

This Sunday, after passing through checkpoint number 10 in the middle of the trekking stage, the longest of the nine versions of the race having 191 km, the English team has lost the advantage of 7 hours that at some point it had in relation to the American team, GearJunkie.com

According to recent satellite reports, the difference between the leaders would not exceed two hours, keeping the hat-trick championship that Londoners are seeking to obtain in expectation. In addition, the Adidas team, having fewer hours of rest in the body than the Americans, supposes a major disadvantage in the final stages, where GearJunkie.com steadily continues to chase the leader.
