Bontrager athlete Julie Dibens became the first athlete in history to win three consecutive Xterra World Championships, racing to victory in SundayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 28.5 mile event around the Makena Beach & Golf Resort in Maui, Hawaii. With her win, Julie Dibens also became the fourth member of an exclusive group of three-time Xterra World Championship winners. Riding a Trek Top Fuel outfitted with a variety of Bontrager components, Julie Dibens finished with a record time of 2:56:42.
The Xterra World Championship is an off-road triathlon consisting of a 1.5 km swim, a 30 km bike course and an 11 km run. Julie came out of the water in second place, trailing the leader by 38 seconds. Within 5 minutes of beginning the bike portion of the race, she had moved into the lead and never looked back. Her blistering pace set the fastest womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s bike split of the day at 1:42:48, a pace faster than an Olympic silver medalist and other World Cup-level mountain bikers also competing. She entered the run with a sizable cushion and finished the race seven and a half minutes before the next female athlete.
