Carina Wasle and Roger Serrano win XTERRA Norway4. September 2018
XTERRA World’s on 28 October at Maui18. October 2018
In the last race of this year’s European Tour Roger Serrano showed again that he is a fighter and that he took the victory from New Zealander Sam Osborn on the final 497 steps from the beach to the finish and even ran out almost 2 minutes ahead. 3 weeks ago at the O-SEE it was the other way around and Roger Serrano had to let the Kiwi go in the second round. For the Frenchman Carloni it meant bringing home a safe race, which he did with 3rd place. So he finally secured the tour victory.
Michelle Flipo (MEX) won the women’s race with a start-finish-victory, but in the end it was a bit tight for her, because the Hungarian Brigitta Poor caught up noticeably. In the end, the lead had melted down to less than a minute. 3rd place went to Lizzi Orchard from New Zealand.
Carina Wasle was not at the start, which was a completely unusual picture at a race of this year’s XTERRA-Tour. However, she had to pause due to injury. But she was also there and watched the whole thing relatively relaxed, because she had already secured the tour victory prematurely due to her sensational 2018 run.
