The 2013 XTERRA Victoria was another epic event; from super fast racing by some of the sports best, to some crazy wipe outs (on what is arguably one of the most technical XTERRA bike courses out there) this race gave the competitors a challenge that will make most races in the future seem pretty easy in comparison. Even our youth athletes got a bit more than they bargained for when a turn around point was mistakenly unmarked and they took on the adult sprint course. They were true champions and made it to the finish line and should be extremely proud of themselves for persevering.
This is a race that is sure to grow because of the course, atmosphere (thanks to our race announcer Jasper Blake), venue, great sponsors and most importantly our volunteers. Thank you to everyone who gave up their Sunday to help make the race a huge success.
A big congratulations to all of our winners, including Victoria’s own Melanie Mcquaid and Brent McMahon who proved why they are two of the best in the sport in winning the Championship event. To those that qualified for XTERRA World’s in Maui this October; GOOD LUCK from all of us at Human Powered Racing!
See you in 2014!
