The im­pres­sive podium caps off Cur­rie’s stunningly suc­cess­ful Euro­pean off-road triathlon rac­ing sea­son.

Over the past six weeks, he has won the Swedish Xterra, placed sec­ond in three Xter­ras (Switzer­land, Italy and France) and placed fourth last week­end in the Czech Xterra. He now sits in sec­ond place in the Euro­pean Xterra cham­pi­onship. Next week­end he swaps solo rac­ing to join his Team NZ Ad­ven­ture (Dou­gal Al­lan, Jess Sim­son and Glen Cur­rie) in China for the Wu­long Moun­tain Quest.
