XTERRA SHORT TRACK－INTRODUCING THE 2021 XTERRA SHORT TRACK SERIES
by XTERRA on 07/27/2021
XTERRA Short Track is a short course race concept that debuted in Czech Republic in 2019. An elite-only event where athletes have to qualify during the full distance event or in a preliminary short track race to claim the best starting position in the final grid. The course is made up of a 2 lap 400m swim with an Australian exit, a very technical 4 lap 6km bike circuit littered with jumps, rock gardens, root infested single track and a couple of flat out pedaling sections. The run will then be contested over 2 laps using a slightly shortened course.
The 2021 XTERRA Short Track series will feature 4 races in Italy, Czech Republic, Germany and France. The biggest advantage of this format is that athletes race multiple laps on a very tight course which makes it perfect for live TV coverage and a thrilling atmosphere for live spectators.
All 4 Short Track events will be streamed live on TriathlonLive.tv, Facebook and other online platforms.
