All’XTERRA Saipan Simone Vacchelli corona il suo sogno

All’XTERRA Saipan Simone Vacchelli corona il suo sogno

Il 15° XTERRA Saipan, nelle splendide Isole Marianne Settentrionali, si è corso il 12 marzo 2016 e ha visto trionfare l’australiano Brodie Gardner e l’austriaca veterana del circuito, Carina Wasle.

Gardner ha preceduto il giapponese Takahiro Ogasawara e il filippino Joe Miller, mentre Wasle si è messa alle spalle Mieko Carey, anche lei giapponese, e un’altra grande campionessa del cross triathlon marchiato XTERRA, la svizzera Renata Bucher.

Al traguardo anche un italiano! Si tratta di Simone Vacchelli che è arrivato in questo piccolo arcipelago nell’Oceano Pacifico dopo un viaggio infinito e, determinato a raggiungere l’obiettivo, ha conquistato il 14° posto assoluto e il 2° di categoria M30-34 che gli è valso l’agognata slot per l’XTERRA Maui World Championship del prossimo 23 ottobre 2016!

Simone Vacchelli premiato come 2° M30-34 all'XTERRA Saipan 2016 vince la slot per il Mondiale
