The elite will come back to the O-See for the XTERRA Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship

Siegerinnen 2019

Sieger 2019Every­thing that has rank and name in the Euro­pean cross triathlon will be found in a few days at the XTERRA Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships at Olbers­dor­fer See. Over 50 elite ath­letes have reg­is­tered for the XTERRA Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship / Ger­many on 08/21/21 and the major­i­ty of them will also start at the XTERRA Short Track Ger­many pre­miere on 08/20/21. For the men, Arthur Ser­rières (FRA), Rubén Ruzafa (ESP), Max­im Chané (FRA), Jens Emil Sloth Nielsen (DNK), Lukas Kocar (CZE) and Arthur Forissier (FRA) start. Arthur Ser­rières and Max­im Chané are con­sid­ered hot favorites. Arthur was able to record vic­to­ries at XTERRA Bel­gium, Switzer­land and the Czech Repub­lic this year and is also the defend­ing cham­pi­on at O-SEE after his vic­to­ry at XTERRA Ger­many 2019. Max­im was able to cel­e­brate first place in France and Italy this sea­son and is also trav­el­ing in top form. From a Ger­man point of view, the mul­ti­ple Ger­man cham­pi­ons Jens Roth and Peter Lehmann start. Both are always good for a sur­prise, as Jens 2019 proved with his 2nd place at XTERRA Ger­many.
The XTERRA Short Track Race is an addi­tion­al chal­lenge this year. In con­trast to pre­vi­ous events, the sprint race in Ger­many takes place on the day before the main race and not after it. A new chal­lenge for the elite, who want to be at the fore­front of the Short Track on Fri­day, but also have to con­serve their strength and mate­r­i­al as best as pos­si­ble for the fight for the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship crown on Sat­ur­day.

Siegerinnen 2019Win­ners 2019: Loanne Duvoisin (CH), San­dra Mairhofer (ITA), Solenne Bil­louin (FRA) and Eleono­ra Per­onci­ni (ITA) are reg­is­tered for the elite women. All of them were vic­to­ri­ous in 2021. Loanne fin­ished sec­ond at Olbers­dor­fer See in 2019, had a strong start to the sea­son but then got injured in the Czech Repub­lic and is now back in the squad for the first time. Let’s hope she has recov­ered well and can build on the form she was in before the injury. Also reg­is­tered are Hele­na Karásková Erben­ová (CZE), Mor­gane Riou (FRA) and Mar­ta Men­di­to (ITA). Hele­na – the XTERRA Ger­many win­ner of 2019 – had actu­al­ly already announced her retire­ment from active pro­fes­sion­al sport but is still in the fore­ground and we are hap­py to wel­come her again. She knows the routes and trails like no oth­er and is sure to attack again.

A total of over 650 ath­letes and teams have reg­is­tered for XTERRA Ger­many and the O-SEE Chal­lenge. Late reg­is­tra­tions are still pos­si­ble for all com­pe­ti­tions on Fri­day, 08/20/21 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sat­ur­day, 08/21/21 from 8.30 a.m. to 10.30 a.m. avail­able. Please note the open­ing times of the orga­ni­za­tion office in the race sched­ule on the web­site.
