XTERRA: Flora Duffy Is A “Dominant Force”

October 21, 2019 | 0 Comments

Bermuda’s Flora Duffy is scheduled to compete in the XTERRA World Championship in Maui on October 27th, with the organisers noting that the “Bermudian legend is a dominant force to be reckoned with and the favourite on paper for sure.”

The report on the official site of XTERRA said, “In the women’s elite race four-time winner Flora Duffy from Bermuda strives for five, but reigning and 3x Champ Lesley Paterson has plans of her own.

“The ‘Scottish Rocket’ outran the women’s field by four-minutes last month at the XTERRA Pan Am Championship and has been champing at the bit to get to Maui ever since.

“Those two will be up against Europe’s best with Morgane Riou from France who won four races including the European Championship, Helena Karaskova from the Czech Republic who won her fifth Euro Tour title, the young gun Loanne Duvoisin from Switzerland who won the overall amateur title just a few years back, and Carina Wasle from Austria who won the Asia-Pacific Tour this year.

“And the contenders list just rolls from there with Jacqui Allen from the UK and Penny Slater from Australia who had big wins, the XTERRA Pan Am Tour Champ Samantha Kingsford and the speedy Lizzie Orchard from New Zealand who are real threats, and American aces Suzie Snyder and Julie Baker who are always in the mix.
