X TERRA Saipan 2014
“I now know why X-terra Saipan is called the “Crown Jewel” of X-terra races “ quoted CHIRU Endurance rider Le Magnan immediately after finishing his first Off-road triathlon !
1.5km of pristine lagoon water to start with, 30km of amazing MTB single track and 12 km off road run with Jungle ravines, and lot's of elevation : that's the secret recipe of what is considered to be one of the most scenic course on the Offroad triathlon world circuit !!
Athletes from across the world were on their pacific island tour to grab top spots and prize money, and the battle was again a fierce one in the pro field !
Pierre Le Magnan was here to qualify for the world Championship, the October 2014 MAUI X-Terra, and won his age group in 3:19:50 despite a poor run to finish with. Placing ahead of some pro's, this is a solid performance for the Hong-Kong based French Athlete.
“ I am stoked of such result for a first time, my experience as Adventure racer helped a bit i suppose. I have a lot to work on to save precious minutes..., starting with my swimming technique ...it's nice to feel there is some margin for improvement ! Those races may seem easy distance wise, but it is always hard to pace yourself in those conditions of high humidity and intense heat as competition is always close! You need to keep full steam ahead at all times to place well !! said Le Magnan.
CHIRU Endurance team is dedicated in racing across Asia in Endurance events, next race being the X-TERRA Saipan which is a First for the team on April 5th. Stay tuned to follow the next exploit of the CHIRU NINE75 !!
