Start of the 2019 XTERRA World Tour in South Africa

The off­sea­son is over! Soon it gets hot again in the cross­triathlon scene. On Feb­ru­ary 24, 2019, the XTERRA World Tour 2019 will start in Grabouw, South Africa, not far from Cape Town. The race in South Africa is one of the tra­di­tion­al races that took place in 2004 for the first time. Among the starters, the reign­ing world cham­pi­on Cari­na Wasle (Aus­tria) and at his home race course, Bradley Weiss (South Africa), which are also reg­u­lar­ly guests at the O-SEE Chal­lenge, start to fight from the begin­ning of the sea­son to defend their title.
The race at the Grabouw Coun­try Club counts as one of the selec­tion races for the 2019 ITU Cross­triathlon World Cham­pi­onships.
The orga­niz­er promis­es an action-packed week­end with the XTERRA LITE and XTERRA Kids on the 23rd of Feb­ru­ary and the full dis­tance on Sun­day, as well as enter­tain­ment for the whole fam­i­ly.
XTERRA Pres­i­dent Janet Clark says, „They live and breathe XTERRA in South Africa.” The expe­ri­ence is a spe­cial one for the ath­letes from the north­ern hemi­sphere, because in con­trast to the north, it is sum­mer in South Africa already and the weath­er is fan­tas­tic.
The XTERRA World Tour fea­tures 39 races in 29 coun­tries around the world, with ath­letes qual­i­fy­ing for Maui at every race!
