STORM Consultancy and some the Team Xtreme have completed 3 days of technical testing on Southport pier.  It has been a great success. Today when many might be preparing to bring in the New Year Team Xtreme Jonathan Cunningham MBE (Race Director) and Peter Massey (Head of Obstacle design and build) have been finalising the engineering means of fixing the 150m square netting to the pier end.  It is such a technical challenge to ensure the obstacle ‘Pier Assault’ is safe and able to stand the impact of over 3000 competitors.
