SA hopefuls ready for XTERRA World Championship

Ten XTERRA SA hopefuls will proudly fly the flag on Sunday, 29 October 2017 when they line up to take on the world’s best at the XTERRA World Championship in Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii.  All eyes will be on the Elite Men’s race where SA’s golden boy, Bradley Weiss (Stellenbosch), will be gunning to make his mark.  “This will be the third time that I race at the XTERRA World Championship,” says Weiss.  “I competed in my first XTERRA in 2011 and went to the World Championship for the first time in 2014.  There have been many highlights throughout my triathlon career, but my two proudest achievements would be winning our National XTERRA SA Title in 2016 and winning the XTERRA European Final in Denmark earlier this year.  I am hoping to execute the race that I know I am capable of.  I feel I have paid my dues at this stage and have the necessary experience not to make the same mistakes.  If I can cross the finish line knowing that I have executed my best race I will be very satisfied. The competitive nature of this race is second to none. I love how close the battle is each year.  My goal is and always has been to win.”  Seen here:  Bradley Weiss in action at the 2017 Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw earlier this year.  Photo Credit:  Tobias Ginsberg
