Chattajack: Danny Ching breaks King Larry in Tennessee; Seychelle goes three-straight

In brief: Danny Ching has ended the long reign of Chattajack King Larry Cain after claiming victory in his first visit to Chattanooga, Tennessee over the weekend.

Danny took out the 31 mile “Inland Molokai” after an impressive 507 teams (including 236 SUPs) started the challenge. Larry, who went undefeated in Tennessee from 2014-2018, had to settle for third step on the podium after Danny and Frenchman Olivier Darrieumerlou (the 2018 11 Cities non-stop champion) pulled away in the final sprint to the line.

Seychelle picked up her fourth title (and third straight) after holding off Kim Barnes over the final 200 metres, with the duo having already broken pre-race favourite April Zilg mid-race. Seychelle and Kim actually earned “equal first” in this race way back in 2015.
