Big surprise for Statkraft

At the prizegiving ceremony, Statkraft got a big surprice - they took the Abu-Dhabi Adventure Challenge Award.  
- It was a very big surprice, said team captain Arvid Björkroth.
- Now one has to change the plans for autum and winter.


Did you expect it?
- No, it was a surprice. But I did not expect just a pair of socks either.


At first the team's fourth place in the race was awarded with a pair of socks to each team member, but after a short moment the race direktor Mikael Lindnord announced the Abu-Dhabi Adventure Challenge Award winner: Team Statkraft.

- I understod that it was something fishy when we only got a pair of socks, said Arvid.


The price was not only a surprice, it was more than welcome to.
- I have for a long period of time wanted to race in a more exothic country.
So the price came as a gift from heaven. The other team members were happy as well.
- Now its just to go home and practice desert trekking, said Henrik Enberg.


Statkraft have existed as a team for two years but this years constellation is brand new, and Explore Sweden Monster was the teams first real test.
- It was a good race for us, we are satisfied with a fourth place, said Arvid Björkroth.


Explore Sweden Monster was the teams big goal this year, even if they had hopes for a place on the start line in the World Champinoship in Spain later this year.
- We will have to see if we got time and energy for both. But if one get a free ticket to start in Abu Dahbi one will take it, the World Champinship will be there another year.
