Teva Lea XStream Race
After a successful debut last year, the Teva Lea Xstream Race is on again, 9th and 10th of October. The event is held on the Lea river, near Miena, south of Devonport, on one of the most beautiful AND challenging stretches of river in Tasmania. Day one will involve a time trial, starting below ‘First Drop’ and finish at the head of Lake Gardiner, where spectators await! The format involves teams of two (for safety), time finishing when last team member crosses the line. Day two involves the mystery Head to Head race (last year over Arm Falls), two at a time racing one challenging section of rapid. This is the second year of this event, with last years winners completing the long course in under 11 mins! The Lea is grade 4 continuous creeking, including, 2 major drops, ‘Screaming Plastic Surgeons’ and ‘Proctologists Twist’. The rapids are numerous and technical with individual drops of up to 4m. The infamous ‘Bull’ trophy is again up for grabs, thanks to Teva.
