Yer­ay Lux­em and Mor­gane Riou win XTERRA Bel­gium

It was a home win for Yer­ay Lux­em. The like­able Bel­gian knows the race very well, he is one of the fathers of XTERRA Bel­gium. He was par­tic­u­lar­ly involved in the devel­op­ment of the MTB tracks around the Namur citadel. That obvi­ous­ly helped him now, because the out­stand­ing MTB time was the guar­an­tor for the vic­to­ry. The sec­ond place went to the French­man Arthur Ser­ri­eres, who was able to make up some ground on the trail run. 3rd place went to the Ital­ian Rinal­di.

The French rid­er Mor­gane Riou took first place in the women’s event, ahead of Mathilde Bolzan (ITA) and Camille Defer (FRA).

Beau­ti­ful from a Ger­man point of view: With Max­i­m­il­ian Sasserath, Veit Hön­le and Peter Lehmann, three Ger­mans made it into the top ten. In the women’s sin­gles, how­ev­er, there was no TopTen place­ment. Maria Döring, who is cur­rent­ly ranked 9th in the tour rank­ing, was not at the start in Bel­gium.
