Laurie Orchard and Neil de ste Croix will be joining Flora Duffy in Maui as they compete in the XTerra Age Group World Championships.

I just bumped into Laurie at Miami Airport on her way to Hawaii and she looked relaxed and confident.

Here is Laurie’s prerace report :

I’m off to Hawaii! Ready for my first off-road triathlon world championship race, which is next Sunday November 1 in Maui. The race is a 1,500m ocean swim (2 laps, and we’ll have to exit the water and run to a marker on the beach in between laps), 32 km mountain bike and 10.5 km cross country run with some natural obstacles. I’m fit and race ready, and I hope to represent Bermuda well once again.

If you want to track me on November 1, go to this link for live results throughout the race (unofficial), starting @3:30 pm AST:

The pro race starts at 9:00 am, the men at 9:05 am and the women at 9:10 am (3:10 pm AST). There will also be a live finish camera from 4:15 pm AST (but you won’t see me until around 7 pm AST) on http://www.xterramaui.com.  Neil de set Croix will cross the line before me and should place well in the men’s 50-54 age group, and hopefully Bermuda’s own Flora Duffy will have a repeat of last year and finish first in the women’s pro-division. Go team Bermuda!
