ENVE Composites – makers of incredible wheels and components produced by riders, for riders – has its manufacturing facility and test lab in Ogden, Utah.
For the fourth straight year they sponsored XTERRA’s ENVE Performer of the Year award, which is presented at the Night of Champions dinner on the eve of the XTERRA USA Championship just a few blocks from their headquarters.
This is the fourth year now that ENVE has sponsored the Performer of the Year award, and previous winners include Chris Scott (2012), Alex Modestou and Hannah Rae Finchamp (2013), and Rob Ricard (2014).
This year there were many standouts to choose from, but, to really get into the conversation you needed to be one of the 64 racers to score at least 300 points in the Series this year. If you score that many points in just four races you were performing at a very high level.
To narrow that field of exceptional athletes down even further we looked at the 19 racers this season that amassed the perfect score of 325 points. That means they won their division at a minimum of four races including a regional championship event.
Now as great of a season as that group had, this year’s award winner had by far the best. He won his division in all seven races he entered. He won the overall amateur USA Triathlon Off-Road National Championship in Alabama and finished 8th overall behind only the top seven pros in Richmond.
From Lititz, Pennsylvania, this year’s ENVE Performer of the Year award winner is Daryl Weaver, who also won the 40-44 XTERRA National Championship on Saturday.
