Hercules took many guises as it made landfall across Europe, from chest-high peelers in English estuaries, to giant mush-burgers off the Basque coast. At this spot in the Canary Islands it took the form of a heaving slab, taken on by a small but courageous crew of hellmen. The ensuing clash saw some glorious moments and an equal number of spine-chilling beatings.
Riders: Alexander Zirke, Vilayta, Manuel Lezcano and Daniel Bruch.
