Duffy defends title in South Africa

Flora Duffy will return to the Grabouw Country Club today to defend her title at the Fedhealth Xterra South African Championship.

And the Bermudian world champion has vowed to give it all she has got in going for her fourth victory.

“This is my favourite Xterra on the circuit,” Duffy said this week. “I am looking forward to the course.

“The bike discipline offers everything you would want, climbing, twisty single track, rock gardens and beautiful views. The run is also really cool. At the highest point of the route you can see the entire race village and the surrounding mountains. It's quite breathtaking.”

Duffy will not have much time to rest as she will then start the defence of her ITU World Series road triathlon crown next Friday in the Abu Dhabi World Series opener, which involves a 1,500 metre swim, 40km cycle and 10km run.

Champion performance: Duffy is going for her fourth straight South African title
