XTERRA caught up with XTERRA Malta winners after the event for a few quick questions.
Brigitta Poor from Hungary, who has been racing XTERRA since 2009, picked up her first big win at XTERRA Malta over the weekend. We caught up with her post-race for a few questions:
XTERRA: What was the course like?
Brigitta Poor: I was lucky to spend a whole week on this beautiful island, Malta. We discovered the bike course few days earlier before the race. First time we shocked how rocky is it and how steeps are the climbs. The organizers find a perfect route for this competition with amazing view on the see. One thing what surprised me the muddy sections on the trail because of the previous days rains. To summarize it: it was a fantastic and unforgettable race! Congrats to organizers of XTERRA Malta!
XT: When did you take the lead?
BP: The swim was a little bit shorter but wavy, it helps me get the lead. I was the first woman out of water. After on the bike I gave more minutes to my race mates. Finally on the run I kept my lead.
XT: Is this your first big XTERRA win?
BP: This is my first Pro XTERRA win. Four years ago I won the ITU Cross Triathlon U23 World Champion title.
XT: How long have you been racing XTERRA?
BP: In 2009, Austria was my first XTERRA race. It was love at first sight!
