OFF-ROAD ADVENTURE IN THE ASIA-PACIFIC

The 2019 XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour features five races in truly remarkable places. The adventures start at the Asia-Pacific Championship race in Kenting, TW on March 30th. The tour rolls on to Rotorua, New Zealand on April 6, transitions to Tahiti on May 31, jumps to Japan on September 15, and concludes with the inaugural XTERRA China on September 22.

ELITE RACING AND AMATEUR QUALIFICATION TO MAUI

Amateurs racers have the chance to secure a spot into the 24th annual XTERRA World Championship in Kapalua, Maui at every race. There are 51 qualifying slots awarded at each of the Gold level events in Kenting and China, and 26 slots awarded at the Silver level races in New Zealand, Tahiti, and Japan.

Age groupers also have the opportunity to win the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour title which will qualify them for their choice of the 2019 or 2020 XTERRA World Championship race. The rules are simple, every race counts and most points wins.

New this year, elite racers count their best three of five races and must include whatever they score – or don’t score – at the championship race in Kenting.

Step 1: Identify your Age Group – How old you are on December 31, 2019 determines your age group. We have divisions for men and women 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79 (m), 80+ (m), and Physically Challenged. At the discretion of the race director athletes with an XTERRA age under 15 may participate, but they will not earn points. 

Step 2: Race and Score – Enter as many races as you want and score points by finishing in the top 15 of your age group. There are two 100-point scale “Gold” races and the remainder are 75-point scale “Silver” races. The season is from March to September.

Gold races: Kenting, TW and China
Silver races: New Zealand, Tahiti and Japan

Step 3: Must Race Two – You must race at least two (2) XTERRA events during the season to be named the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour Champion. There is no limit to how many races you can count.

Step 4: Most Points Win - The athlete with the most points at the end of the season - by gender and age group - earns the title of XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour Champion and a qualifying spot into the 2019 or 2020 XTERRA World Championship race.

Step 5: Tie Breaker - If there is a tie in points, the tie-breaker will be the person with the most wins. If still tied after counting wins, the person finishing highest in the most recent race where both competed. If no head-to-head exists, tiebreaker goes to the person finishing highest in most recent race.

Step 6: Qualifying for XTERRA Worlds in Maui - Maui slots will be awarded to XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour Champions at the end of the season, and at every XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour Gold and Silver Event.

Note: Races held on and after September 1 qualify athletes for their choice of 2019 or 2020 World Championship slot. Tour Champions will also have the option to race in the 2019 or 2020 World Championship.

2019 XTERRA Asia-Pacific Championship: It is not necessary to qualify, nor be from the Asia-Pacific region, to race at the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Championship, which will double as the XTERRA Kenting on March 30 in Kenting, TW. This is a one-day award as opposed to the Tour Championship which counts all races. In Taiwan, the top overall finisher, regardless of nationality, in each age group will be honored as the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Champion.

Physically Challenged Athletes - Physically Challenged athletes may choose to compete in the XTERRA Physically Challenged male/female division or in XTERRA age group divisions. PC athletes must choose whether to race in the PC or age group division at their first race of the season, and remain in that category for the entire year.

- There are no PC age group divisions (15-19, 20-24, etc…) or disability categories (PT1, PT2, etc…)
- PC athletes who race at least one XTERRA will earn a World Championship slot.
- The male/female PC athlete with the most points at end of the season earns title of Asia-Pacific Tour Champion. PC athletes must race at least two events to be eligible for Tour awards.
