It was a double deal for Xterra World Champ – and European, Asian & African 70.3 Half Ironman Champ – Bradley Weiss, as well as Stellenbosch tri coach and triathlon star Vicky van der Merwe, who both won the inaugural Walkerbay Xtreme MTB Triathlon, hot on the heels of their Sprint Triathlon win earlier  in the morning.

The afternoon saw a bit of an ocean chop as participants took to the Old Harbour for their 600m swim, followed by a steep climb to T1. A scenic 15km MTB ride followed, and athletes concluded their race with a 5.6km run.

The Walkerbay Xtreme MTB Triathlon was new addition to the WBX weekend in 2018. Held on the same day as the Sprint Triathlon, off-road tri enthusiasts tackled their course later later in the afternoon.

An interesting fact is that some die-hard triathletes participated in the morning’s Sprint Tri and the lunch time Open Water Swim, as well as the MTB Tri!
