Callum Gibbins the fittest at Hurricanes
January 19, 2014
Flanker Callum Gibbins beat his own record as he retained his title at this year's Hurricanes Surf to Peak event on Saturday.
The 25-year-old beat home fellow loose forwards Brad Shields and Adam Hill to take the victory in a time of 57 minutes and 55 seconds, beating his 2013 time by 44 seconds.
The punishing event, which started at Lyall Bay, consisted of a 1km run, a 21km cycle around the bays and a 2km uphill run to the Mount Victoria lookout.
There are only three players in the race's history who have completed it in under an hour.
