Il quattro volte iridato XTERRA Conrad Stoltz, dal Sudafrica, e Mieko Carey, la portacolori giapponese di Saipan, hanno vinto sabato 27 agosto l’ottava edizione dell’XTERRA Japan Championship, nel Nikko National Forest di Marunuma.
Di seguito le dichiarazioni di “Caveman”, il vincitore.
“I really enjoyed this race. It’s beautiful, technical, challenging, scenic, the organization is exception, and the Japanese people are super polite and respectful. It was more than I expected,” said Stoltz. “It’s for sure the hardest race, even harder than Whistler. A lot of stuff I couldn’t ride, and the penalty for failure is pretty big, but we all made it through and everyone is all smiles and filled with accomplishment at the end of the day.”
