(Honolulu, HI) – The third of 12 half-hour shows in the 2019 XTERRA Adventures television series debuts nationwide in the U.S. on Outside TV this Wednesday, August 14, at 10pm EST*.

International viewers can watch it on Outside TV’s YouTube Channel at: https://www.youtube.com/user/Outsidetelevision.

Episode three takes viewers along for a day in the life of veteran elite XTERRA racer Francois Carloni, who in addition to winning the XTERRA European Tour last year, spends more than 40 hours a week managing the hardware store he owns and operates in his hometown of Frejus in Southeastern France.  We also meet aspiring elite Mandy Dammekens, a 34-year-old Belgian sports instructor at the Royal Military School in Brussels, who overcame her struggles with swimming to become one of the sports fastest females.

Along with getting to know Francois and Mandy, this edition of XTERRA Adventures documents the XTERRA Belgium off-road triathlon that was held June 8, 2019 around the scenic and iconic one-thousand-year-old Citadel in Namur. The grueling event started with a 1.5-kilometer swim in the Meuse River, followed with a 37-kilometer mountain bike through forest trails and city steps, and finished with a tough 10-kilometer run around the famous fortress.
