Arthur Ser­ri­eres and Mor­gane Riou win XTERRA Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship in Prachat­ice CZ

Anoth­er dou­ble vic­to­ry for France and that with a very large start­ing field – the biggest of this year’s tour.

The old cham­pi­on Ruben Ruzafa (ESP) led togeth­er with the world cham­pi­on Bradley Weiss (RSA) for a long time and it almost looked like a vic­to­ry for Ruzafa. But then the young French­man start­ed for the final sprint and over­took the Spaniard on the last 2 kilo­me­tres of the run­ning track. 3rd place went to Bradley Weiss.

The British rid­er Jacqui Slack once again showed her qual­i­ties as an excel­lent moun­tain bik­er. How­ev­er, she also prof­it­ed a lit­tle from the ini­tial prob­lems that the Czech Karasko­va had on the bike course. Swim­ming with­out neo­prene had been quite a prob­lem for her. But at the lat­est on the run split she had to be reck­oned with again and she start­ed to catch up togeth­er with the French­woman Riou. They man­aged to over­take the Brit. The Swiss Luanne Duvoisin also man­aged to pass Jacqui and to push her­self to 3rd place.

Xavier Daf­flon (SUI) and Hele­na Karasko­va-Erben­o­va (CZE) now lead the XTERRA Tour clas­si­fi­ca­tion.
