XTERRA Brazil This Saturday
XTERRA Pros Dan Hugo and Shonny Vanlandingham are in Brazil for the 2010 XTERRA Brazil Championship this Saturday in Angra dos Reis. It’s Hugo’s second trip to the jungles of Brazil this year, having won the XTERRA Estrada Real regional title back in March.
The reigning XTERRA South Africa Champ will face a heavy contingent of South America’s best triathletes and mountain bikers including Alexandre Manzan (pictured here with Hugo at this year's regional race).
At 41-years-of-age Vanlandingham is having her best year as an XTERRA Pro, ranked No. 1 in the XTERRA U.S. Pro Series with three championship wins – in Nevada, Alabama, and most recently at the Mountain Championship in Colorado.
Hugo and Vanlandingham were out pre-riding the course today, and you can read Hugo's colorful account of the experience on his website, www.dghugo.com (plus pics).
