Elite Athletes Eligible for XTERRA Worlds

By XTERRA

In NON-OLYMPIC years it is mandatory for professional athletes wishing to race at the XTERRA World Championship to compete in at least one XTERRA event during the course of the season.

“The spirit of the rule is to honor the core collection of elite athletes that race with us year-round and support our growing number of XTERRA World Tour Championship events,” said XTERRA managing director Dave Nicholas.  “From February through September we offer 25 major races in 20 countries around the world – including eight in Europe and five in the U.S.  We feel this provides ample opportunity for professionals serious about racing in Maui to compete in at least one qualifying race. We need to honor the commitment and loyalty of the pros that are with us during the year.”

There are four notable exceptions to the rule, which are granted to a) former world champions, b) XTERRA World Tour race champions from previous year, c) sponsor exemptions, and d) extenuating circumstances due to injury.

To date (7.26.13) here is a look at the elites who have met the requirement to race in Kapalua, Maui on October 27.
