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!


Having gleaned the above tidbits from South Africans who raced there last year -and the XTERRA Reunion FB photos, I knew this was going to be my first XTERRA since my retirement from

STOLTZ Racing and Adventure. Personalized Triathlon coaching by the Caveman.

STOLTZ Racing & Adventure, Conrad Stoltz Caveman triathlon and mountainbike coaching

STOLTZ Racing & Adventure

Personalized online coaching by the Caveman himself.

“This is the culmination of the knowledge and experience I have gathered during a lifetime of training and racing at the highest level. It took 2 decades of constant searching, learning and making many mistakes first hand to find and refine the “winning recipe.” Most of the ingredients are below. Its science based. It relies heavily on quality athlete feedback. Data gathering and giving via GPS/HR monitor and power meter takes the guesswork out of training and enable us to relay massive amounts of information via But despite this mountain of “hard data”, coaching is also an art – mixing rigid science with fluid humanity.”

Your parents determined which genes you bring to the game, but I’m not here to grow champions. Sure, winning is/was!? my expertise, but my passion is helping people make the most of their talents, goals and time, which enables them to enjoy the sport and life in general.

With this exclusive package I write a 100% custom-made programme for you personally every week. Taking into account your past week’s training and life stress, upcoming goals and the like. I also factor in time constraints and your work/travel/family schedule. I am a firm believer in a balanced, happy lifestyle – which is when I performed at my best.

As you can imagine this is intensive work, and therefore I will only be able to take on a limited number of athletes.

There are 2 options, they are both of the level of personal care I feel comfortable to put my name to.

Contact me for more information and pricing.

Custom made training & racing kit, free and discounted product from my sponsors, an instructional video library and Adventure Training Camps in exotic locations planned.

Zena Stoltz 10 months

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!

Destination Trail – Tasmania. Specialized rider Troy Brosnan makes me want to pack my bags and go ride flowy Tazzie trails. Wow.


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!
