Reigning XTERRA World Champion, Flora Duffy will return to the picturesque Grabouw Country Club on Saturday, February 25th to defend her South African Champion title at the largest XTERRA in the world, the Fedhealth XTERRA South African Championship.
According to Duffy, she’ll definitely be going for her fourth victory. “This is my favorite XTERRA on the circuit,” says Duffy. “I am looking forward to the course. The bike discipline offers everything you would want- climbing, twisty single track, rock gardens and beautiful views. The run is also really cool. At the highest point of the route you can see the entire race village and the surrounding mountains. It’s quite breath-taking.”
