We're excited the 2012 XTerra will be held again at Kapalua. This year, the XTerra World Championship is Oct 28, 2012. With the XTerra Show currently airing on the mainland, we've had several Maui bike rental customers stop into our Maui bike shop to ask about riding the XTerra mtb trails at Kapalua.
We thought you, our Maui biking readers, would enjoy the following XTerra video of the mtb trails used in the races. Before the 2011 XTerra, Jim Thijs, trained on the bike course of the XTERRA World Championship at Kapalua. This video displays some of the technical sections of the mtb trail at the beginning of the XTerra course:
A total of 675 athletes representing 28 countries and 42 states participated in the XTERRA World Championship, featuring a 1.5-kilometer swim, a 30-kilometer mountain bike and a 10-kilometer trail run. Thanks to XTERRAPlanet.com for the bike video.
