XTERRA Euro­pean Tour 2019 – News and facts

The event plan for the upcom­ing XTERRA sea­son has tra­di­tion­al­ly been announced dur­ing the XTERRA World Cham­pi­onships in Maui. The most impor­tant races world­wide are sum­ma­rized in the World Tour, 2019 37 races. The World Tour is divid­ed into the Amer­i­ca Tour, PanAm Tour, Euro­pean Tour, Asia Paci­fik Tour, Aus­tralia Series, Cana­da Series, South Africa. For us Euro­peans, the Euro­pean Tour is of course the most impor­tant series. In 2019 it will com­prise 17 races. The tour will start on April 7th in Cyprus, the end of the tour will mark the races in Scan­di­navia, although their dates are not yet fixed. The high­light of the Euro­pean XTERRA sea­son will be the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship in Prachat­ice, CZ, our neigh­bour­ing XTERRA event with a long tra­di­tion. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Michal Pilousek and the XTERRA CZECH team ! New in the series are the races in the Nether­lands and Lux­em­bourg. The race in the Nether­lands of the Sil­ver cat­e­go­ry will be held on Ame­land, an island in the Wad­den Sea. This promis­es quite a lot of sand, a lot of sea, a lot of wind and few alti­tude meters in a very small space;-). We are curi­ous. There is no offi­cial infor­ma­tion yet about the XTERRA race in Lux­em­bourg, which is planned for the first time in 2019. Also new on the tour is the XTERRA Grave­mann in Savoy/France, an XTERRA for­mat with almost twice the dis­tance, first held in 2018. XTERRA Roma­nia will not be there in 2019. The orga­niz­ers are 2019 orga­niz­ers of the ETU Mul­ti­sport triathlon Cham­pi­onships

From XTERRA Germany’s point of view there is a good con­stel­la­tion to the neigh­bour­ing races, since the 3 races in East­ern Europe take place on 3 con­sec­u­tive week­ends and thus far-trav­eled ath­letes have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to com­plete a triple in a good 14 days. The three races would also have the poten­tial for an XTERRA mini-series with­in the Euro­pean Tour anal­o­gous to the Scan­di­na­vian com­bi­na­tion or a con­ceiv­able Benelux series.

The XTERRA Ger­many on August 17, 2019 will again be a high­light of the series, a Gold Race and will present itself in the usu­al way as a major event at the O-SEE, togeth­er with the O-SEE Chal­lenge, with a large sup­port­ing pro­gram, EXPO, Par­ty, X´Kids Chal­lenge – 2019 again in com­bi­na­tion with the Ger­man Cross-Triathlon Cham­pi­onship of the DTU. Prepa­ra­tions are in full swing, online reg­is­tra­tion will be pos­si­ble from mid-Decem­ber, the exact date will be announced in good time!
