yes the trip to get here is long, BUT being here, enjoying the ocean, the nature and meeting all the Xterra friends at the end of a long season again, is just wonderful.
everybody is very excited about the new course. a few parts of it are already open and the locals are helping the athlets to get around and to get an idea. what I already saw, I really, really like it.
the weather will stay warm, hot, 85 F. race start is on Sunday 9am. 675 athlets from 28 different countries will race.
1mile rough water swim - 19 miles "good" mtbiking !, 6 miles trail run.
that's it !
by the way; on Friday 2pm I will have the bike clinic together with Josiah Middaugh. talking about the course, nutrition, tires... everybody is welcome, and we are looking forward to have an discussion with the visiteurs, getting some difficult questions ...
more news and pics soon
