The old champion Ruben Ruzafa (ESP) starts after a long absence at XTERRA events this season a furious race to catch up in the XTERAR European Tour ranking: After 3rd place at the XTERRA France now the first victory this year at the XTERRA Italy – Scanno. Xavier Dafflon from Switzerland took 2nd place with only 57 seconds behind, but just 5 minutes ahead of Filippo Barazzuol from Italy.
Helena Karaskova once again showed her strength in the women’s XTERRA races, which were technically and conditionally demanding. On the MTB track she had a 3-minute lead, which she managed to extend to 5 minutes ahead of the Italian Sandra Mairhofer during the split. 3rd place went to Eva Garcia Gonzalez from Spain.
Rui Dolores (ESP) still leads in the men’s tour ranking. Helena Karaskova has taken the lead for the women.
