The 2007 XTERRA season will start in Villa Carlos Paz, a small village located in the Córdoba province of Argentina in southern South America. Cordoba is the second largest city in the country and the race site is just a half-hour drive time from the Cordoba International Airport.
The location is a hot spot with visitors spending their summer holidays (December-March) basking in the sun. The course itself boasts the traditional XTERRA championship distances with a 1.5k swim, 30k mountain bike, and 10k trail run. The terrain is said to be hilly with beautiful landscapes (see www.villacarlospaz.gov.ar) and the race website is up -www.xterraargentina.com.ar - but only in Spanish (English version coming soon).
Noted Argentinean triathlete Oscar Galíndez (1st place, Ironman Florianópolis, Brasil 2006 – 13th place, Ironman Hawaii 2006 – 2nd place XTERRA Brasil 2006) has already confirmed his participation.
The race will take place inside Bidderosa Park – a protected land base fronting white sand beaches and granite cliffs formed by the wind and sea. For details check out xterraitaly.it or write firstname.lastname@example.org
The 2006 Nissan Xterra USA Championship begins its run in national syndication on Friday in Dayton, Ohio and makes its way to TV screens in Michigan and Utah over the weekend. The 2006 race broke the mold with Melanie McQuaid snapping Jamie Whitmore’s 4-year winning streak and Seth Wealing becoming the first American in the six-year history of the event to win the race. See when the show’s on in your hometown here.
