Cari­na Wasle and Roger Ser­ra­no win XTERRA Nor­way

With this vic­to­ry the most active ath­lete of the XTERRA Euro­pean Tour made the pre­ma­ture title win as Tour­cham­pi­on per­fect, the lead is so big that the out­come of the last race is com­plete­ly irrel­e­vant. Anoth­er nov­el­ty, at this race the dain­ty Aus­tri­an placed the best swim, bike and run­ning split. This is not an every­day occur­rence for Cari­na, as she is not one of the top swim­mers in the elite field. Here the short­en­ing of the swim dis­tance to 750 m was cer­tain­ly very help­ful. 2nd place went to Jes­si­ca Roberts, 17 min­utes behind. And that was it with the elite women. How­ev­er, with Jen­ni Snangs­berg (DEN) there was an ama­teur who announced the fight to Cari­na and came sec­ond in the over­all stand­ings.

Roger Ser­ra­no (ESP) won the men’s race, but Peter Lehmann and Fran­cois Car­loni fol­lowed him in the places. Car­loni had a tech­ni­cal break­down on the bike-split. With the 3rd place Car­loni still man­aged to main­tain the tour lead. Peter Lehmann, who can cer­tain­ly be described as the shoot­ing star of this year’s tour, is now in sec­ond place. How­ev­er, Roger Ser­ra­no is only 6 points behind him.

At the last race, XTERRA Den­mark, every­thing can be mixed up again. How­ev­er, Fran­cois Car­loni only needs a 6th place to main­tain the top posi­tion in the tour rank­ing. Not so with the women, there can only be a fight for place 3 (Nicole Wal­ters (GBR) vs. Hele­na Karasko­va (CZE). Brigit­ta Poor also has sec­ond place in her pock­et, just like Cari­na has won.
