Ruben Ruzafa and Brigit­ta Poor win XTERRA France

The Spaniard Ruzafa is prob­a­bly unbeat­able on this course. In the best con­di­tions he rel­e­gat­ed Arthur For­risi­er (FRA) and Bradley Weiss (RSA) to the ranks with a bril­liant demon­stra­tion on the bike. It is now the 5th vic­to­ry in a row… For the reign­ing XTERRA World Cham­pi­on Weiss it was the first race in Europe this sea­son, which he imme­di­ate­ly fin­ished on the podi­um. The young French­man For­risi­er once again showed his strength this sea­son and took the lead in the XTERRA Euro­pean Tour clas­si­fi­ca­tion with sec­ond place in Europe’s most impor­tant XTERRA race. Fran­cois Car­loni, who was lead­ing so far, crossed the fin­ish line in 5th place and was not able to main­tain his top posi­tion in the series rank­ing.

Among the women, the Hun­gar­i­an Brigit­ta Poor won the XTERRA crown in France with a start-fin­ish vic­to­ry. She is prob­a­bly the best cross triath­lete in Europe at the moment. The per­ma­nent rivals Kari­na Karasko­va (CZ) and Kari­na Wasle (AUT) fierce­ly fought for sec­ond and third place. In the end, how­ev­er, the Czech won and so it was once again said: 3rd place for Wasle, which means that Kari­na could defend her lead in the tour clas­si­fi­ca­tion against the Hun­gar­i­an.
