Can Kelly keep husband Dave's temper in check long enough for them to make it to the finish line?

Keen biker and fisherman Dave admits he has very little patience and doesn't suffer fools.

"We're not here to make friends. I've never played a sport to lose.

Haven't even played cards to lose. I don't do anything to lose.

We're going to kick some arse," says the 52-year-old Dave from Geraldton, WA.

His wife of 11 years, 37-year-old Kelly, admits some people don't understand their relationship.

"Some people think we've got an arranged marriage. They just can't believe we're still together because we're just so opposite in many ways," she explains.

"I spend all my time fishing with my mates," says Dave. "While Kel spends all her time shopping with her friends.

"The biggest problem I think we're going to have on the race is we're not going to get to spend any time apart."

But Kelly assures, "When we are together we make it work."

She credits her husband with igniting her love of travel and adventure.

"I didn't get a passport until we got together. We've traveled ever since," says Kelly.

They were married in Fiji and celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary in the Cook Islands.

Dave, who has two children from a previous relationship and four grandchildren, is putting all his faith in Kelly being the more observant member of their team.

"Her rationality is better than mine. She takes more notice of stuff around her than I do," he says.

He also has a warning for his wife, who confesses she doesn't ever try anything "hardcore".

"I'm going to push Kelly to do stuff that she's never ever dreamed of doing," he says.

"You don't know what the challenges are going to be or where you're going to be going so I don't think there is any way to prepare yourself for it. All we can do is pay as much attention as possible and maybe trip a couple of people up along the way."[1]
