Chloe Carloni: 2016 European Tour F30-34 Champion
“She is fighting for years against the XTERRA “virus” that was already attacking her husband François, but was not strong enough! She finally “cought the disease” and joined our happy, friendly XTERRA Tribe! You will recognize Chloe in one second, she is always smiling during the race…! When she says she enjoys it, you can see it in her face that this true, at least on the first half of the race, as sometimes following François advise “yes you can do it, it’s easy and short” ends up in a very technical 3h mtb race !!! But she is a fighter and will try to finish every race not only to prove to her husband that she can do it, but because she loves it” said Nico Lebrun -XTERRA European Tour Director !!!!
