Signe and Thomas Olsen, Denmark, (both above), and Todd Sankey, Vancouver, were the Hans Islanders. In 2008’s RTL, they finished 8th in a field of 35, 3 hours 26 minutes and 12 seconds behind the first finishers over 800 km. Gjerding-Jensen was 17 years old.

UNICOM XV marathon times and top 11

Interesting to note that of the top ten Marathon finishers in New Zealand, just one, France’s Martin Charrier, did not race in Ride the Lobster.

Unicycling since she was six, Gjerding-Jensen, at Unicon XIII in 2006, finished 1st in the Women’s Marathon. At Unicon XIV, in Denmark, riding in the Expert Class, she was again first, six minutes+ ahead of Irene Genelin, the next fastest woman.

In New Zealand for Unicon XV, she was again 1st in the Marathon among women riders.
