ELITE RACING AND AMATEUR QUALIFICATION TO MAUI
Amateur 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 France, Italy-Scanno, Czech and Germany, and 26 slots awarded at the Silver level races in Cyprus, Greece, Malta, Italy-Garda, Portugal, Belgium, Denmark, Switzerland, Netherlands and Luxembourg.
Age groupers also have the opportunity to win the XTERRA European 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 50% of their races, plus one. If 14 races on Tour, your best 8 scores count, regardless if gold or silver and must include whatever they score – or don’t score – at the championship race in the Czech Republic.

XTERRA POLAND CANCELLED
The organizers of the XTERRA Poland off-road triathlon today announced the event, scheduled for August 11, 2019, has been cancelled.
“We regret having to cancel and apologize to our XTERRA athletes and our event partners,” said XTERRA Europe Director, Nicolas Lebrun. “The organizing committee did their best to keep the race on the schedule but were unable to secure the proper support to ensure a quality XTERRA experience for all involved.”
Following the cancellation, there are now 14 championship events on the 2019 XTERRA European Tour calendar, starting with XTERRA Cyprus on April 7. Of note, elites racing on the XTERRA European Tour will still count their best eight races.
