Ruzafa, Wasle win XTERRA Reunion
Three-time XTERRA World Champion Rubun Ruzafa from Spain and Carina Wasle from Austria captured the 2nd annual XTERRA Reunion off-road triathlon on Sunday.
Ruzafa has now won 15 of his last 16 XTERRA majors and is 19-of-23 for his career.
Francois Carloni and Yeray Luxem finished 2nd and 3rd, and the “Caveman” Conrad Stoltz finished 9th in his first race since retiring.
“To me, "Retirement" does not mean "stay on the couch forever", it means "train for fun and race for fun" - which meant I finished 20 minutes (9th place) behind winner Ruben Ruzafa,” posted Stoltz to his Facebook page. “Much fun was had. Stunning course, magical island and people.”
In the women’s race Wasle and South African Carla Van Huyssteen went back-and-forth all day until the Austrian pulled away at the end.
