Bradley Weiss and Flora Duffy win Xterra South African Championships

Bradley Weiss and two-time Xterra World Champion Flora Duffy have won the 2016 Fedhealth Xterra South African Championship.

"Bradley Weiss"

It's a place up from last year for Weiss, when he finished second, and his fourth win in five weeks, and his second win on the Xterra World Tour this year following his victory in Albay, Philippines.

“I don’t think the win has sunk in yet,” said Weiss.  “It’s been approximately five years since I started taking part in Xterra Grabouw.  I started out in the Xterra Lite, and if I think back to then, I would never have dreamt about winning at the Xterra SA Champs.  It’s such a surreal feeling.  I couldn’t be more proud.” 

This is two-time Exterra World Champion Duffy's third straight SA title, her ninth consecutive Xterra major and her 13th win, out of 16, on the Xterra World Tour since 2013. She dominated from the onset and had the fastest swim, fastest bike by nearly seven-minutes and fastest run by four

 “Getting my third victory in Grabouw is really cool,” says Duffy.  “I won my very first Xterra here.  As I spend five months out of the year in South Africa, Grabouw is an unofficial home race for me.  The Grabouw course is phenomenal.  It’s a true Xterra course.  You have to know how to ride a mountain bike. ”
