Kahuna Dave's "Night Before XTERRA..."
Dave "Kahuna Claus" Nicholas, the managing director of the XTERRA World Tour, chimes in with his annual "Night before XTERRA Worlds" ever-changing classic...
Twas the night before XTERRA
Gotta be Conrad or Nico
A chance of Mike Vine
As always and forever
While those boys and girls
Michi Weiss from Austria
McMahon is back
As for the gals
Renata now is back
The Worlds are a race
But when the sun beats down
So all you great folks
And no matter who wins
So now I must go
You’ve come a long way
So see you tomorrow

XTERRA WINTER WELCOMES TEAM COMPETITION
New in 2009, the XTERRA Winter World Championship race scheduled for March 8 at Snowbasin Resort in Utah will feature a relay team competition in men's, women's and co-ed divisions. The race, which features four disciplines: running (5k), snowshoeing (5k), mountain biking (10k), and ski mountaineering (8k), can be divvied up between two and four racers.
