Goat Sighting in the Atacama Crossing Race


The Goat has landed. Joe Holland, Backcountry.com athlete, has been spotted on stage 4 of the Atacama Crossing. It's easy to spot Joe if you look for the Goat.

Stage 5 has just about concluded and the final results are not in yet as there are a few competitors still on course. Mark Tamminga (currently in first place), Francesco Galanzino (third place holder), Ahn Byeung Sik, Joe Holland (still holding onto second place by 2 minutes) & William Coffey crossed the finish line together at 7:13pm last night with team GB close behind. At that time the majority of competitors were still on course, waiting for daylight before final stretch to camp. Stage 5, affectionately called the March of Death, was an overnight stage streching for more than 50 miles.
