XTERRA is an off-road triathlon with open water-swimming, mountain biking (MTG),and trail running.
Triathletes compete in raw nature, giving the triathlon a unique spin compared to regular triathlons.
XTERRA was born on the island of Maui in Hawaii in 1996.
XTERRA is a world series with 41 races held in 30 countries (82 races including sub-events) Today.
Approximately 150 qualifying races, mainly championship series,are held in different regions throughout the world.
In Asia,these races are held in Japan,Taiwan, China,Korea,Thailand,and the Philippines among others.
As Maui is the sacred birthplace of XTERRA,triathletes who qualified gather in Maui every October to compete for the XTERRA world championship.
XTERRA is an off-road triathlon.
The race in nature though, nature is not always friendly to us, sometimes it becomes very tough environment.
However one of the most attractive points of XTERRA is to feel nature with whole body.
This will become a great opportunity to realize and nurture nature friendly feelings.
XTERRA is not a massive community though, have a strong bond among all the athletes regardless home or abroad.
All athletes on XTERRA communicates each other during these races, also before and after, even during off-season so that we call ourselves XTERRA family,not only the competing triathletes but also their families,partners,local people,volunteers,sponsors,all those who involved in these events are XTERRA family.
And our final goal is to make every XTERRA family have a big smile on their face through these events.
E-bikes are becoming a center of the cycle sports in the world especially in Europe.
In XTERRA JAPAN in 2019,we will introduce e-bikes which have really started to be used since last year in Japan and areblowing up right now.
The tournament will be held under officially proved XTERRA organization group called TEAM Unlimited LCC in the United States,which group held the first off-road triathlon with e-bikes in the world.
We decided to appoint a bike journalist,Mr.Kenji Nanba who introduced e-bikes to Japan.
He will supervise the race course and regulations.
We think carefully the balance of spirit technique body.
We aim for the new age of the triathlon that we value elements by techniques.
At the Xterra Japan 2019,we will have a test ride event with the newest model of an on-road bikes or MTB(mountain bikes) on an occupied paved road and off-road around the venue.
This will be a good opportunity to try e-bikes on the hilly road.
The e-bikes perform at their full potential on a hill.
