Soley, Gobbo win XTERRA Brazil
May 13, 2016/in All, All Triathlon, Pan Am /by XTERRA
Albert Soley from Spain and hometown hero Sabrina Gobbo from Brazil captured the 12th annual XTERRA Brazil Championship in Ilhabela on Saturday.
It’s the first XTERRA World Tour win for Soley, who won the amateur 25-29 XTERRA World Championship in 2013 before going pro.Soley, who finished 5th in the XTERRA European Tour standings last year, was fourth out of the water then powered his way to the front with the fastest bike split of the day. He crossed the line in 2:11:22, more than three minutes ahead of 2014 XTERRA Brazil Champ Felipe Moletta. Last year’s winner Diogo Malagon posted the best run split of the day to finish in third.
In the women’s race Gobbo cemented her position as Brazil’s fastest female racer with her third straight XTERRA Brazil Championship win. She’s the only Brazilian to win the championship race since its inception in 2005, and matched Shonny Vanlandingham as the only other 3x winner. Like Soley in the men’s race, Gobbo took control during the bike with the fastest split of the day and ultimately finished 10 minutes ahead of runner-up Laura Mira Dias. Isabella Ribeiro was third.Gobbo will now travel to the United States to race at XTERRA Oak Mountain in Alabama, the fourth stop on the XTERRA Pan America Tour title, next weekend.
“When it was announced that in 2016 they would have a Pan American XTERRA circuit, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to evolve and try to compete with much stronger competitors then I was competing against in Brazil,” said Gobbo, who finished third behind Myriam Guillot-Boisset and Kara LaPoint at XTERRA Costa Rica in March. “This way I can get out of my comfort zone and try to reach for that extra power to achieve more, something that sometimes we don’t think we have.”
XTERRA Brazil was the 12th of 37 events where the fastest amateur athletes from around the world could qualify to race at the 21st annual XTERRA World Championship at Kapalua, Maui on Oct 23.
