A quick vid from a mate who did The Nugget.


Hey Team,
I just wanted to share this quick video with you all. An old school mate, Grant Smith, decided he was going to do the Solo Nugget this year. This is no small undertaking, especially for Grant who suffers from a rare medical condition called Addison’s disease. This basically means that his adrenal glands don’t produce the right hormones, so he suffers from a major lack of energy. To cut a long story short, he borrowed a yak of Ruahine (a Firebolt), trained hard, and smashed out the race in 4 hours and 32 minutes, coming in at 14th place. An amazing achievement and I’m so stoked to have been involved…good on ya mate!
