Arthur Ser­ri­eres and San­dra Mairhofer win XTERRA Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship in Zittau/Germany

The favourites pre­vail at the XTERRA Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships at the Olber­dor­fer See in the nature park Zit­tauer Gebirge. After his vic­to­ry in 2019 at the XTERRA Ger­many at O-SEE, Arthur Ser­ri­eres repeat­ed his tri­umph at the same place. And again, thanks to a strong run­ning per­for­mance, he was able to “clinch” the vic­to­ry only in the 3rd dis­ci­pline. Sec­ond place went to the high-fly­er of the sea­son from Den­mark – Jens Emil Sloth Nielsen. Third place went to the Czech Kocar, who pos­si­bly lost his vic­to­ry due to a mis­take on the run course, as he had been in the lead until then.

In the women’s race San­dra Mairhofer under­lined her out­stand­ing form this year. After a good swim, the like­able South Tyrolean imme­di­ate­ly took the lead on the 36km long and tech­ni­cal­ly demand­ing MTB course and nev­er relin­quished it. Even on the run course she was able to extend her lead and won with a com­fort­able 6 min advan­tage over XTERRA Short Track Ger­many win­ner Diede Dideriks (NED).With 3rd place the Czech Hele­na Erben­o­va-Karasko­va showed that she is still a force to be reck­oned with. In 2018, the for­mer cham­pi­on of Euro­pean cross triathlon declared the end of her career, but returned to the XTERRA cir­cus in 2019 and has since been extreme­ly suc­cess­ful again.
