As part of the many events that will be taking place at Adventure Sports Week 2009, World champions Melanie McQuaid and Conrad Stoltz will be hosting a free triathlon clinic called the “Paul Mitchell XTERRA University”.
ASW begins June 5th, a week from this Friday in Farragut State Park near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Over the course of the next ten days, the event will be host to a number of great races from trail runs, mountain bike rides, and several adventure races, with top endurance athletes such as Mike Kloser, Robyn Benincasa, and Danelle Ballengee on hand to share in the fun.
XTERRA University is being offered for beginners and experienced triathletes alike, as we can all learn something from Melanie and Conrad. Mel has won the XTERRA World Championship three times, and has been a consistent performer in athletic events for the past several years. She competes not only in running events, but mountain biking and road cycling as well.
Conrad is a two time Olympian who has also won the Xterra three times, and has won the All Africa Triathlon five times as well. A native of Africa, he competes in many events there, and has also been the South African Triathlon Champion five times too. He is widely considered one of the top triathletes in the world, both on or off the pavement.
This is just one of many great events that will be taking place at Adventure Sports Week. If you haven’t seen something to draw you in by now, you probably never will. But it’s not too late to register to race in one of the many events. Join the fun and have a blast in the process. Sounds like it’s going to be quite the party!
