Carina Wasle (Austria) claimed her third Fedhealth XTERRA SA title in a deserving time of 02 hours 51 minutes 43 seconds at the Elgin-Grabouw Country Club on Saturday, 24 February 2018.

“I had a very good race,” says Wasle. “I always start a race with the goal to win.  My swim was perfect.  I was first on the bike and just kept my lead.  I am very happy to win today.”  Hayley Preen came in second, while Johandri Leicester finished third.

Says Jeremy Yatt, Principal Officer of Fedhealth: “The Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw is a great event for the serious off-road triathlete, where you can clinch one of the various age group qualification slots for the XTERRA World Championships taking place later this year. Grabouw offers unforgiving, yet breath-taking terrain, and the chance to bring your family to either participate or spur you on across the finish line. It’s no wonder it’s the biggest XTERRA in the world.”
