“Getting my third victory in Grabouw is really cool,” says a delighted Ms Duffy after the race.

“I won my very first XTERRA here. As I spend five months out of the year in South Africa, XTERRA Grabouw is an unofficial home race for me.

“The XTERRA Grabouw course is phenomenal. It’s a true XTERRA course. You have to know how to ride a mountain bike.

“The crowd and community involvement really makes this race special. I’m happy with my overall 7th place and my third XTERRA Grabouw title.”

    Most of the top triathletes are in their late 20′s early 30′s. Flora has always shown great talent but in terms of her career I think she’s just entering her best years! Congratulations Flora!
