My experience at the event:

My fourth Xterra (on quite a cold day compared to the past editions) saw me getting closer to that top 100 (last year I crashed and I was so far behind...) but still not cracking it.

My performances was quite impressive by my standards: 8:39 in the swim (down few minutes from last year and my best overall performance in this competition), 58.02 in the MTB (thanks to a new MTB course which was less technical, and to my new mountain bike with, finally, disk brakes and proper front shocks) and 31:54 in the run (6 hard trial kms) . All of them my best time on the leg in the competition.

Curtis finished around 20 minutes behind me, due to lack of training, but as usual we both celebrated great performances with some chicken wings at Hooters!
