Duffy has been very dominant throughout this year’s XTERRA racing season, winning the XTERRA South Africa Championship, the XTERRA West Championship in Nevada and the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Championship in Australia.

The two-time Olympian was cited as the favourite coming in, with the race preview saying, “For the women it’s all about Flora Duffy, who has been nothing but dominant this season.

“She started mountain biking all the time back in December and we’ve seen her skill level start to match her remarkable fitness level, creating a hard-to-beat-anywhere talent.”
