The Norseman media team met Stuart McInnes, CEO of XTRI World Tour, for a coffee (of course) in Eidfjord ahead of the Zalaris Norseman and XTRI World Championship 2022. The XTRI World Tour consists of 16 races with different landscapes and cultures but with one thing tying them together, the extreme.
An new XTRI World Tour race often starts with a coffee and chat with Stuart and then a few years later it`s a race on the XTRI calendar. You can currently sign up fo many of the XTRI World Tour and if you are looking for a life changing experience then listen to our chat with Stuart.
There is no athlete that comes to Norseman without already having a long journey of training and hard work behind them. When the media team sat down with 26-year-old Scottish athlete Eilidh Prise ahead of the 2022 race though, we knew we had found someone special. Instead of following a training plan she goes on ‘adventures’… Instead of a coach driving her, it’s her pure love of the mountains that spurs her on. Instead of putting on a steely race face, she draws energy from cheering and laughing along with her supporters.
Of course on race day we saw just how magical this approach could be – but for now, it was our opportunity to chat how it felt to be a double-record-holder at Celtman – and just how excited she was about facing the mighty mountains here in Norway.
Mauricio Mendez is a 24-year-old professional triathlete from Mexico. Mauricio raced his first triathlon at age 10 with his father, and they’ve been a fierce coach/athlete duo ever since.
Together, they’ve won multiple XTERRAs and half Ironman titles, including Mauricio becoming the youngest XTERRA world champion at just 21, and in 2018, Mauricio won our sister race Patagonman.
BBC Presenter Louise Minchin gave up competitive sport at age 15 because she didn’t like the way she looked. Thirty years later, she’s raced in several Triathlon World Championships and has done two extreme triathlons. Here’s how triathlon changed her life.
