The Pinacolada Classic

[Post held off until article published in local sports newspaper] This Saturday (June 17) I spent the day at Le Morne for the 3rd race of the Mauritius Freeride League, an event taking its name from a drink by the main sponsor, Nature’s Juice! Organised with the Roberto Ricci Designs team in the scope of their international distributor’s meeting, it was surely one of the most colorful days you could spend at the beach. “Voyez plutot:”
