XTERRA Short Track Lures Off-Road Elite to France

June 15, 2022

The XTERRA off-road triathlon racing season heads into primetime July 2 in Xonrupt, France with the first of four events in the 2022 XTERRA Short Track Series.

June 15, 2022/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ –  The XTERRA off-road triathlon racing season heads into primetime July 2 in Xonrupt, France with the first of four events in the 2022 XTERRA Short Track Series.

XTERRA Short Track is an invite-only event exclusive to the top 25 eligible men and women.

While qualification procedures vary per event, the majority of competitors earn their spot via XTERRA World Rankings status. To add intrigue and value to the broadcast, wild card slots are awarded to local racers, young guns, and Short Track specialists likely to shake up the status quo.

The first round of the fast-paced, made-for-TV format has attracted the world’s best off-road triathletes to the start line in France, including reigning and two-time World Cross Triathlon Champion Arthur Serrieres (FRA) and 2021 World Cross Tri Champ Loanne Duvoisin (SUI).

More than 5,000 spectators will be on-site to create a roaring track-side atmosphere around the infamous bike park – an intricate series of wooden ramps and berms that up the action, speed, and adrenaline for athletes and fans.

The action of all four rounds will be broadcast free via live stream. Viewers can sign up here to have the live links from each event sent directly to them along with series updates and event reminders, or follow the event pages here:

Start times and live stream links will be announced via XTERRA’s global Instagram and Facebook accounts closer to the time.

The showcase event will be held the day before the traditional full-distance XTERRA France and XTERRA Germany off-road triathlons, and the day after the XTERRA European and World Championships, dishing out a total of €200,000 purse to the world’s fastest XTERRA racers over those four weekends.
