314km and 8,500m elevation gain, navigating the iconic Camino de Santiago from Oviedo to Santiago de Compostela - what better way to put our first Chance prototype kit through a rigorous, high-intensity, multi-day test.

Chance founders 
Christian Meier and Tom Austen joined a stellar team put together by Suunto España featuring 

Emma Snowsill Frodeno, Aleix Ferrer, Deena Be and Adrià Canimas for the inaugural Red Bull Buen Camino for what promised to be an epic adventure.

Day one did not disappoint; a full-gas 98km charge through the Asturius, taking in tarmac, woodland, mountains and plenty of trail as we made our way to Pola de Allende.
The team left everything out there and finished in second place.
