Europe Triathlon is partnering with XTERRA Europe to bring you the 2021 European Cross Triathlon and Cross Duathlon Championships. This race doubles up as the inaugural XTERRA Trentino Dolomiti Paganella.
Athletes representing their European Federations will be racing alongside non-federation athletes who may participate in the XTERRA open category in both the Triathlon and Duathlon events.
European Elite and Age-Group titles will be on offer as well as XTERRA World Championship slots. Details can be found here.
The towns of Molveno and Andalo are situated in the Trentino region fronting the Brenta Dolomites, which hosted the inaugural XTERRA Molveno Short Track races in October 2020, is the perfect destination for off-road racers and their families looking for a gorgeous holiday getaway.
“It is a real honor for us to host such a great international event. We are really excited to organize another epic race, after the first international XTERRA Short Track event in 2020, we are looking forward to sharing this adventure with our mountain community. We really believe our destination could become a favorite hotspot for professional and amateur endurance athletes with our stunning Dolomites landscape, great tourism facilities, and wide range of outdoor experiences for the entire family”
Luca D’Angelo, the Dolomiti Paganella Tourism Board Managing Director
The event will be held in cooperation with Europe Triathlon and the Italian Triathlon Federation.
“The municipalities of Molveno and Andalo in the heart of Brenda Dolomites are the perfect location for off-road duathlon and triathlon racing. It’s a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast and offers the perfect infrastructure. I am delighted the 2021 European Champs of Cross Triathlon and Duathlon have been assigned to XTERRA. Europe Triathlon has for many years enjoyed good collaborations with other professional organizers and we are happy to start this new experience with XTERRA”
