We got some sad news this week from Chilean star Barbara Riveros who had a mountain bike crash and suffered a slight fracture to her foot that will force her to sit-out XTERRA Worlds for the second year in a row.

"I'll get back there and give it another try, I just need to be patient," said Riveros, who has finished runner-up in Maui twice and was one of the women's favorites for next Sunday's race.

Here's a look at the updated elite men's and women's start list, sorted by country.
