Tag: XTERRA World Championship
Lesley Paterson was the only girl playing rugby with the boys when she was growing up in Scotland. That love of getting dirty has served her well as she has become one of the world’s best off-road triathletes, having won the XTERRA U.S. National Championship in both 2012 and 2013, and the XTERRA World Championship in 2012. She has a cool new workout program that just launched at www.6min6pack.com and our in studio chat with Lesley and her Behavioral Psychologist husband Simon Marshall was downright hilarious.
Jamie Whitmore has won more XTERRA events than any pro athlete in history. She ended up with 37 wins, five XTERRA USA Pro Championships and the XTERRA World Championship title in 2004. Her journey since the 2007 XTERRA World Championship race has been extraordinary to say the least. She now runs with crutches and rides the mountain bike basically with one leg. But she’ll be racing the Leadville 100 and her attitude is over the top. “Life doesn’t stop just because it changes,” Whitmore insists. “We can cry about how things are, or we can keep moving forward. I choose to move forward.”
Lesley Paterson is coming off a huge win at the XTERRA World Championship in Maui. Heather Jackson took fourth at the 70.3 Worlds in Vegas and second in Oceanside last spring to 2010 Ironman champion Mirinda Carfrae. Paterson, from Scotland, was the only girl on her rugby team growing up and Jackson played ice hockey at Princeton before trying to make the 2006 Olympic team. They came in studio with Huddle and me to talk triathlon, rugby, hockey and much, much more……
When he won his first of four XTERRA World Championship titles, Conrad Stoltz took home $20,000 US, which was worth the equivalent of $280,000 back home in South Africa. ‘The Caveman’ came on for a classic chat that covered his two Olympic experiences, his recovery from a horrific mountain bike crash that left him with a broken back, and his unbelievable 40 XTERRA victories.
