Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa created an upset during the annual Bilibili Race in the Men’s Division yesterday.

Defending champions Shangri La’s Fijian Resort and Spa finished second to the Nadi side. Sofitel general manager Allan Burrows praised the win.

“It was unexpected, but the boys trained hard for it and it has not been easy since we’ve not been for the last three years,” he said. The BSP Life Trophy will be travelling down to Nadi for the first time. Founder of the race, Bob Kennedy was very happy with the turnout and participation.

“The win by Sofitel makes the event exciting and we are happy with how the day ended,” he said.

“We still need few more technical upgrades that we need to work on and we look forward to doing that in years to come.”
