Returning to where it all began, Taiwan will once again get the World Cup started with a raw, rough and rugged course that simply refuses to be taken lightly. A never-ending series of punchy climbs, technical rock sections and hair-raising descents, the 40.5K journey from Little Bay Beach to Stony Brook Farm has become infamous in its relentlessness, and will test every skill an athlete has on the way to the finish.

The Rude Awakening

This is a course that takes no prisoners. Between the consecutive climbs, the unforgiving heat, and the sheer weight of the humidity, this is the rude awakening a full-gas series like the XTERRA World Cup deserves. The course is almost entirely natural from start to finish, and a place on the podium will take absolutely every ounce of strength, skill, and concentration an athlete has, with no room for error or doubt. 

For almost anyone other than Arthur Forissier and Alizée Paties, this will be a race of redemption. If he starts, World Champion Arthur Serrières will have a score to settle with this course after starting his 2023 with one of his worst results of the season. Felix Forrisier and Maxim Chané will want to erase the memories of going from a potential podium to salvaging a top-10 position after both puncturing a tyre on the same rock. World Champ Solenne Billouin will no doubt be itching for another crack at the battle with Paties that raged on for almost 40K before Paties settled it on the final climb. The list goes on.

This is a course that will make or break, and nothing in between. A rude awakening, and also the ultimate curtain raiser of the 2024 XTERRA World Cup.
