Arthur For­rissier and Camille Defer win XTERRA Switzer­land

Dou­ble vic­to­ry for France at XTERRA Switzer­land! The dom­i­nance of French cross­triath­letes in 2019 is impres­sive. In the men’s sin­gles alone, 6 French­men have made it into the top ten. In the women’s event, 3 of the 6 elite starters start­ed from the Grande Nation.

For­risi­er is in impres­sive shape this year, the race in the Vallee de Joux has been “his” race for years. After a good swim per­for­mance (8th place) he took the lead on the MTB split and then extend­ed it on the trail run course. A bit­ter duel broke out between Corentin Duc­los and Cedric Fleure­ton, who Fleure­ton won with 25 sec­onds.

For Camille Defer it was the first vic­to­ry at an XTERRA event of the Euro­pean Tour. The long time lead­ing Swiss Lad­i­na Buss could not oppose the young and super fast run­ner on the trail run track and had to let the French run­ner go. 3rd place went to Isabelle Fer­rer.

Rui Dolores (POR) and Cari­na Wasle (AUT) con­tin­ue to lead in the tour rank­ing. The best Ger­man ath­letes are Peter Lehmann (5th) and Maria Döring (5th).

Next race: XTERRA France, one of the high­lights of the XTERRA Euro­pean Tour.
