XTERRA Reunion. Adventure paradise…
XTERRA Reunion by Conrad Stoltz
The tropical, volcanic island of Reunion is located close to Madagascar. Reunion, with its distinctly French flavor, is also Adventure Paradise! A perfect home for XTERRA:
Tropical climate with palm trees, warm water, corral teeming with colourful fish, but also plenty of lava rocks, leg bursting climbs, scenic views, technical single track, river crossings, beach sand and of course a very enthusiastic local triathlon community!
My first Triathlon since retirement!
I know, I havent blogged in a while. There has so much to talk about this past year! Many fantastic stories and memories, retirement from professional racing, baby Zena, my first winter in 23 years(!?) and new beginnings in the coffee shop and my coaching business. But as any new parent will tell, you – once you have a baby in the house – priorities (and time) change beyond imagination!
Being known as “the sporty couple”, we have been warned that our baby is going to be busy! We thought it was cute at the time, but no jokes! Zena is one busy body!
However much fun it is, one needs a break from working all that coffee magic…
Did quite a few 14hr days
Caveman rock drops fat tyred Stumpjumper 6Fattie
Now that I’m retired from racing, I love trail riding just for fun. Stellenbosch (South Africa) has plenty of great trails, like the new Red Route in Jonkershoek.
In the edit I drop my Specialized Stumpjumper 6Fattie into the rocks. I ride the 3 inch wide 650B tyres quite soft- 18psi rear 15 psi front (1.2 and 1 Bar) they just soak up the trail rubble and let you rail the trail.
Caveman’s go everywhere, do anything bike!
