XTERRA Les Bois is excited to announce the return of seasoned pro, Guy Crawford. Guy returns to race XTERRA Les Bois for the second year running. Due to a foot injury in 2012, he was forced out of the race last year after leading off the bike during the pro race.
Guy, aka knows as Captain Awesome, splits his time between Boise and Perth, Austratlia. He began 2013 with a “BANG” winning the Albany Half-Ironman and continued that streak with the following results in 2013:
Albany Half Ironman 1st
Albany Olympic 1st
Karri Valley long course Tri 1st
Challenge Taiwan (iron distance) 6th
”I’m super excited to be back racing XTERRA Les Bois, I’m looking forward to doing a few rides leading up to the race on the bike course. (hoping a few people will join me) It’s such a great race with a really cool atmosphere. It’s a race for all, beginner through to the elite”
Guy will be leading weekly Wednesday evening rides from 6:30PM-7:30PM starting July 3rd until the race. They will leave promptly at 6:30PM from transition 2. Please refer to race maps for details.
