Xterra World Champ – and European, Asian & African 70.3 Half Ironman Champ – Bradley Weiss smashed the competition with a convincing win in the 2018 edition of the HI-TEC Walkerbay Xtreme Sprint Triathlon on 29 April 2018. He dashed over the finish line in 1:05:57, over a minute ahead of chasing duo Dylan Pivo and Nicholas Tinkler to take the 2018 Walkerbay Xtreme Sprint Triathlon title.

Stellenbosch tri coach and triathlon star Vicky van der Merwe won the women’s division in a time of 1:16:34, with Alex Antonakis and Linda Detering in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.

Race Day dawned to near perfect racing conditions. A thrilling jump from the rocks set the scene for a wetsuit compulsory ocean swim, followed by a steep climb up the Old Harbour pathway to T1. Athletes then set off on a spectacularly scenic, flat and fast 20km cycle before returning to T2 and finishing off with a 5km run.

And whether they came first or last, everyone was in agreement: The Walkerbay Xtreme Sprint Triathlon has established itself as a new firm favourite on the annual race calendar.
