Maui, with its rich culture and vibrant people, will forever be an inspiration to the XTERRA community, serving as the birthplace of our beloved sport. We find ourselves deeply moved and disheartened by the extent of devastation brought about by the raging wildfires in Maui. The profound impact the fires have had on everyone on the island is truly heart-wrenching. Lives have been upended, homes and livelihoods reduced to ashes, and the embrace of loved ones forever altered.
Within our team, there are those who maintain strong connections to Maui, and their personal ties to the island make this calamity even more poignant. To all those grappling with the unfathomable, we extend our heartfelt sympathy and unwavering support. The outpouring of compassion and assistance from individuals on the ground is a beacon of hope amid these trying times. We also extend gratitude to those who continue to channel their messages of love and solace, underscoring the unity that binds us all.
