Rom Akerson and Lesley Paterson win XTERRA World Championship5. November 2018
Traditionally 14 days after the Ironman, the cross version of the Hawaii triathlon myth will start on October 28th on the neighbouring island of Maui. Over 800 athletes are on the starter list. In 40 XTERRA qualifying races worldwide, these athletes have qualified for the highest quality XTERRA race in the world, the XTERRA Hawaii on Kapalua/Maui. 16 of these races are united in the XTERRA Europe Series. The XTERRA Germany at the O-SEE was the flagship of the European events – one of the three European so-called Gold Races, 2018 additionally with European Championship status. No wonder that a quarter of the 66 PRO athletes who will compete on Maui in 2018 were already on the starting line in Zittau, with reigning XTERRA World Champion Bradley Weiss (RSA), New Zealander Sam Osborn, Roger Serrano (ESP) in the lead, Frenchmen Maxim Chane and Francois Carloni in the men’s singles as well as XTERRA European Champion Brigitta Poor, Austria’s Touring Champion Carina Wasle and Lizzy Orchard (NZL).
