ÔÇ£CavemanÔÇØ is champ

Four-time Xterra World Champion, Conrad “Caveman” Stoltz claimed the first ever ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships in El Anillo, Spain at the weekend.

Stoltz’s strength on the mountain bike won him the race, after emerging from the water some 90 seconds behind Great Britain’s Richard Stennard in 20th place on the one kilometre swim.

Scorching the course with the day’s fastest bike split, 3min 40sec faster than any other man in the field, Stoltz built an insurmountable lead.

First onto the 6km cross-country run course, Stoltz stayed in front for good and cruised to the line to break the tape at 1hr 26min 40sec to take the title of first ITU Cross Triathlon World champion.

Stoltz dominated the field, winning by almost a full minute over Seth Wealing who was second across the line to take silver.┬á Triple Olympian Marceau rounded out the podium, finishing a further two minutes behind Wealing. Stoltz’s fellow South African, Nico Sterk finished 19th overall.

In the women’s race, Susan Sloan finished in the top 10 , working her way through the field on the bike after coming out of the water in 19th place overall.
