Dique Ullum, San Juan – Josiah Middaugh and Myriam Guillot-Boisset captured the elite titles at XTERRA Argentina in San Juan on Saturday March 27th .

The victories put both Middaugh and Guillot-Boisset atop the leader board in the inaugural XTERRA Pan American Tour standings.

It’s the second win in as many weeks for the CHIRU-MAGURA athlete Myriam Guillot-Boisset, who took home the XTERRA Costa Rica title last Sunday, and the first major XTERRA victory of the year for Middaugh, the reigning XTERRA World Champ.

In the women’s race Guillot-Boisset flew past Fabiola Corona just after T2 and put the hammer down.

“She went by me-zoom, so fast,” said Corona. “I just made a good run but could not catch her.”

Corona finished 2nd with Laura Mira Dias from Brazil in third and home country favorite Erika Simon from Argentina in 4th.

Myriam will then race early May the Asia-Pacific Championship in Malaysia where she will defend her 2015 title.

Myriam GUILLOT is supported by CHIRU, MAGURA, SKINFIT, HOPE.
