The 2016 Fedhealth Xterra SA season kicks off this month
The Xterra Buffelspoort event takes place in the North West Province over the weekend of 22 to 24 January 2016, followed by an exciting introduction to Port Elizabeth with the Xterra Nelson Mandela Bay event over the weekend of 29 to 31 January 2016.
Leading Xterra SA Warrior, Carla Van Huyssteen will kick off her racing season by participating in all three Xterra SA events. “Xterra is a challenging off road triathlon, but this is what attracts me to the sport,” says Van Huyssteen. “The nature of the sport sees the events being held in uniquely beautiful parts of the country. Xterra SA events can be likened to a well-oiled machine. The organisation is very professional, you know that you won’t be disappointed from registration, to on route experience, venue set up and finish. I cannot wait to see what Stillwater Sports has planned for us at Xterra Nelson Mandela Bay. The more Xterra’s the better. It’s a really nice change to once again have an ocean swim at an Xterra SA event. The stronger swimmers will definitely have a bit of an advantage if they can read the sea conditions well. It is going to be great.”
The Fedhealth Xterra Grabouw, taking place over the weekend of 19 to 21 February 2016, forms part of the Xterra World Tour. Athletes competing at this event stand the chance to qualify for the world championship final in Hawaii later in the year.
