Reigning champs return to reclaim cross tri title

By Chelsea White on 24/09/15 at 5:36 pm
This weekend will showcase one of the muddiest disciplines in triathlon with the 2015 Sardegna ITU Cross Triathlon World Championship. Set over a 1.5km swim, 31km off terrain bike and 9.6km cross country run, athletes will grind it out for a chance to call themselves the world’s best. With a challenging course that offers technical turns, sandy sections and off road tracks, this race is not for the faint of heart.
Thanks to the surge in popularity cross triathlon has received, Saturday will feature a mixture of veterans and newcomers that is sure to be scintillating. In addition to the elites, the Under23, junior, age group and paratriathlon divisions will be contested.
Women’s Preview
Kathrin Muller (GER) returns as the reigning Cross Triathlon World Champion after collecting her first title in Zittau last year. Her victory came after she dominated and stole the crown over the two-time Cross Triathlon World Champion Helena Erbenova (CZE). This year, with Erbenova off the start list, it is Muller’s race to lose as she vies for a back-to-back title.
Lining up second against Muller is Flora Duffy (BER), who earned silver last year. While Duffy hasn’t been as steadfast on the XTERRA circuit as compared to last year, she did win the XTERRA Mountain Championship in July. While she has been focusing on the World Triathlon Series and qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games this season, the strong cyclist is still a name to look out for.
Renata Bucher (GER) won the 2015 Schluchsee ETU TNatura Cross Triathlon European Championships and can be expected to carry that momentum into Sardegna in the hopes of improving from her seventh-place finish in Zittau last year.
No stranger to the sport, Jacqueline Slack (GBR) nears the top of the women’s elite start list. Finishing sixth in the World Championships last year, she competed in the 2015 Snowy Mountains OTU Cross Triathlon Oceania Championships and took home the silver medal.
Another name making headlines in the multisport world is Elisabetta Curridori (ITA). Taking the European market by storm, she earned the silver in the Revine Lago - Tarzo ETU TNatura Cross Triathlon European Cup, right before she went on to be crowned victor at the Schluchsee ETU TNatura Cross Triathlon European Championships in the 20-24 age group sport class.
Ranked third in the XTERRA European elite rankings is Carina Wasle (AUT). She earned the bronze medal in Schluchsee and will without a doubt be looking to get within the top field in Sardegna.
A newcomer to the cross triathlon world, Barbara Riveros (CHI) enters the field with enough credits to her roster to rightfully give her the respect to crossover to the discipline. She made the rounds in the WTS circuit and earned the gold medal at the Toronto Pan American Games, but will have to prove that she can handle the tough cross triathlon course.

Men’s Preview
After taking over the title and being freshly named the new World Champion last year in Zittau, Ruben Ruzafa (ESP) returns in the hopes of holding onto the crown. While also holding the honour of being named the XTERRA World Champion for the last two years, he will also have the chance of becoming a three-time consecutive gold medallist when the race is held in November. And he is on the right track to do so, having won the XTERRA European Championships in August.
Nicknamed the ‘The Caveman’ due to his consecutive conquests in the cross triathlon world, Conrad Stoltz (RSA) returns to reclaim his thrown. With past honours earning him a trifecta of world titles, the three-time World Champion lines the start list looking to get back to his former glory after only finishing eighth in Zittau last year. But after taking home the silver in the 2015 Bohinj ETU TNatura Cross Triathlon European Cup earlier this month, the South African seems to be climbing his way back.
Another South African towing the line is Bradley Weiss. While he has not raced in an ITU competition since the World Championships last year, he has been a constant competitor in the XTERRA circuit. He has podiumed at gold or silver in every race he has contended in this season.
Next to them will be Belgium’s Kris Coddens. He shows his strength on both the bike and run, and if he can avenge in the water, he could have a chance at making podium, something he did at the Revine Lago - Tarzo ETU TNatura Cross Triathlon European Cup when he earned the bronze.
Frenchman Francois Carloni and Australian Ben Allen also line the start list in the hopes of making podium. Allen took third in the XTERRA European Championships and will be looking to redeem himself after his DNF last season in Zittau. Carloni is currently ranked second in the XTERRA elite rankings, but has yet to tally a victory and will be wanting to get his first gold this weekend.

Ruzafa and Duffy dominate at Cross Tri World Champs

By Chelsea White on 26/09/15 at 1:49 pm
Ruben Ruzafa (ESP) and Flora Duffy (BER) were crowned the king and queen of the rough and tough on Saturday after winning the 2015 Sardegna ITU Cross Triathlon World Championship. Conquering one of the grittiest and grimiest races of the season, Ruzafa was named World Champion for the second consecutive year, while Duffy earned the gold for the first time.
Women’s Review
After earning only the silver in Zittau last year, Flora Duffy set out to claim her first World title with a mission of authority, and after her performance in Sardegna, her mission was finally deemed successful. Joining her on the podium was ITU multisport newcomer Barbara Riveros (CHI), who took silver, and Brigitta Poór (HUN), who took the bronze.
Duffy commanded the race right off the bat after taking an early lead in the swim. With an advantage of nearly 1:30, she was first to exit the waters. Riveros followed in the second position, with South African Carla Van Huyssteen not far behind.
Struggling through the first transition, Van Hussteen lost time in the zone and was unable to hold onto a top placement.
Putting her strongest discipline to the test, Duffy was able to increase her lead to over two minutes on the bike. Cruising through the mudslinging off road tracks, the Bermudian seemingly remained untouched so far in the competition with only the run left before she was able to secure her crown.
While Duffy worked alone on the bike, Riveros, Poór and Carina Wasle (AUT) toughed it out together.
Germany’s reigning World Champion Kathrin Müller entered the day in the hopes of reclaiming the title she won in 2014. But after the bike, it looked as if the day would end without any second chances as she trailed by a massive gap of 13 minutes behind Duffy.
It was the run that eventually determined the tough from the tougher. While the trio of Duffy, Riveros and Poor had worked to put themselves into the 1,2,3 positions, it was up to them if they could hold out on the run to grab the podium that they had worked so hard for.
Duffy carried out the fastest run split of the day right into the finish line to secure her the World Championship she was longing for. Riveros also secured the silver after delivering a swift run time, which catapulted her into the respect lines of the multisport world. Using the momentum of the lead she built up from the bike, Poor was able to finish the day in third.
Great Britain’s Jacqueline Slack took fourth place after displaying an impressive ride on the bike.

Men’s Review
After a comeback start and tight finish, Ruben Ruzafa became a back-to-back World Champion, winning the cross triathlon honours for the second consecutive year. Earning his first ITU podium, Francisco Serrano (MEX) finished with the silver medal, followed by Sam Osborne of New Zealand with the bronze.
Dominating in the swim was Gemany’s Jens Roth, exiting the waters with a 22-second advantage.
Ruzafa’s day looked like the sights of a repeat championship would be over before it even began after he finished the swim and headed into the second transition down by almost a two-minute deficit. But showing no mercy to the mud and muck of the off road track, he pushed out a blistering first lap on the bike to blow by the competition and catapult him into the first-place position.
Also mastering phenomenal performances on the bike, Seranno and Francois Carloni (FRA) stuck together to remain in second and third.
Declaring it was his final cross triathlon World Championship, ‘The Caveman’ Conrad Stoltz (RSA), who is a three-time World Champion, unfortunately had to settle with officially handing down the multisport torch to the next generation. He exited the waters down by nearly two minutes and was unable to close the gap throughout the rest of the race.
Entering into the run, Rufaza managed to secure a comfortable lead. But the swift split from Serrano put nervous pressure on the reigning Champion as he gained on the Spaniard heading into the final kilometres. With the gold looking like it could come down to the wire, Rufaza was able to showcase one final ounce of effort to ultimately put enough space between Serrano and cross the finish line to receive his gold.
Serrano followed behind for the silver medal just a mere 26 seconds later. Osborne then came in to claim the final spot on the podium, after basking through a strong run to pass multiple competitors and eventually take the last piece of hardware.
