MINNEAPOLIS, USA – The 2024 XTERRA World Cup is set to elevate professional off-road triathlon in its second season with the introduction of new race locations and enhanced livestreaming coverage.
Format and schedule updates promise to showcase the sport's growing appeal and XTERRA's commitment to innovation in off-road racing. Greece and Quebec have been added to the 7-Stop series, which now includes larger Short Track fields with a maximum of 30 entries. Points have been adjusted, with Full Distance races awarding 100 points and Short Tracks offering 75 points where all race scores are counted to athletes’ totals.
The 2024 XTERRA World Cup kicks off in Taiwan with its APAC Championship course featuring intense climbs and technical descents. Greece is the next stop, offering a fast, scenic route starting in the Aegean Sea and traversing Varkiza and Vouliagmeni's mountain trails.
Stop #3 showcasing the XTERRA North American Championship at Oak Mountain, known for its pristine lake and epic bike loop, offers a strategic double-feature event with the first livestreamed Short Track race of the 2024 season. Belgium’s course with river swims and cobblestone climbs will emphasize endurance under the Citadel's watchful eye.
The fifth stop in Quebec debuts Canada's entry with its top-tier Full Distance Triathlon and high-speed action on the Short Track making it a final chance to earn points in North America. Stop #6, the historic Czech town of Prachatice, doubling as the XTERRA European Championship, is renowned for its point-to-point bike segment and purpose-built permanent Short Track course.
The final stop in Trentino, Italy, historically a widely-viewed event, includes the spectator-friendly Short Track and a challenging Full Distance race through Lake Molveno and the Brenta Dolomites, culminating the series and awarding the title of XTERRA World Cup Champion.
"XTERRA is bringing the action right into your home," said J-D Cousens, XTERRA VP of Operations & Global Marketing. "With select races live-streamed, fans can experience the excitement and intensity of the World Cup from anywhere in the world."
