TeamRSAWEB’s Stuart Marais No.1 at XTERRA Knysna 2012

July 13, 2012

Since already winning two of the Knysna Big 5 was not enough for Stuart Marais  –  he has now won the XTERRA race too – and we couldn’t be more happy for our newest member of TeamRSAWEB. Read all about his blistering win below. Follow TeamRSAWEB for more updates!

This was by no means an easy win for Marais – as it meant going up against former multiple SA mountain biking champion and 2010 XTERRA Knysna winner Kevin Evans “Today’s race was really hard,” says Marais.  “I had to build a lead on Kevin Evans and Nico Pfitzenmaier, which meant that I had to go out really hard on the first 3km run.  Kevin caught me quickly on the mountain bike leg, it felt like I was standing still.  I tried to stick with him, but in under a minute he was gone.  I waited for Nico Pfitzenmaier and Tyronne White who were in 3rd and 4th place and cycled with them pretty much into transition.   I heard that Kevin had 2 ½ minutes lead on me, so I put my head down and just tried to find my rhythm.   XTERRA Knysna is perfect for those athletes that want to compete for the first time.  I just loved it,” says Marais who crossed the finish line in an impressive time of 01hour39minutes32seconds.   Kevin Evans came in second, while Nico Pfitzenmaier finished third.
