Dou­ble vic­to­ry for Arthur Ser­ri­eres and Lau­ra Philipp at XTERRA Czech

Both the new com­pe­ti­tion for­mat XTERRA Short Track and the “real” XTERRA Czech had the same win­ners on the podi­um: Arthur Ser­ri­eres (FRA) and Lau­ra Philipp (GER). Which means noth­ing else than that both ath­letes are good sprint­ers, good tech­ni­cians and con­di­tion spe­cial­ists in equal mea­sure.

Max­im Chane was still in the lead in the men’s com­pe­ti­tion at T2, but was final­ly tak­en by the extreme­ly good run­ner Arthur Ser­ri­eres on the run­ning split. But the real sur­prise was the Bel­gian Sebastien Cara­bin, who, after a mod­er­ate swim per­for­mance, achieved the absolute best bike split and then left Fran­cois Car­loni (FRA) and the Czech Kocar behind him on the trail run.

 

Since the spec­tac­u­lar vic­to­ry of the Ger­man long dis­tance spe­cial­ist Lau­ra Philipp in the almost leg­endary mud bat­tle of the XTERRA France 2017, she was once again believed to be able to reward the trip from the road triathlon to the ter­rain with pre­cious met­al. And how she man­aged to do this: unchal­lenged start-fin­ish vic­to­ry ahead of the two Ital­ians San­dra Mairhofer (who thus achieved her best rank­ing ever) and Mar­ta Men­dit­to.
