The teams will be followed live on the www.enduranceaventure.com website all weekend. Spa Balnea and Louis Garneau are with us (as sponsors) in this adventure. the team includes Georges Visser, Jean-FranÃ§ois Rivet, Nicolas LemaÃ®tre and myself. The boys asked me to join their team once they heard I had some more time on my hands.”
