The start of the 2011 Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race proved tough but spectacular as extreme winds (100 km/h!!) blew competitors over on the opening bike section, whipped up the water in Rio Gray but helped to blow away the clouds and clear the Torres massif to create a picture postcard day in Torres del Paine National Park.
The teams soon spread apart along the 60km route as the leaders raced methodically, drafting to protect themselves from the wind. Others struggled and were forced to dismount and walk.
