XE: I think your last XTERRA was in 2013 when I was still a racer or I missed some ?
Yes, my last XTERRA was in 2013 in France, although I always been training with the MTB, I didn’t have the opportunity to race Cross Triathlon.
XE: Why are you coming back after all those years?
XTERRA has always been in my mind. This season I have decided to mix short, long and cross triathlon in my training plan.
XE: You start in Malta, first race of the season in Europe, that means that you plan to do more if everything goes well?
Oh Yes! It’s quite possible I will do some more at the end of the season, but I haven’t decided yet which one.
XE: Seeing Ruben and Roger getting little bit more spot light in Spain reminds you of XTERRA ?
I’ve never stopped to follow XTERRA races and riders and it’s really nice to see the exposure that these Spanish athletes are getting in our country.
XE: Did you spent some time training on the MTB for this race? Do you think you are able to win?
I use to train with my MTB during the winter and this year a bit more thinking of Malta. I don’t know if I will win or not but I’m training specifically for this race and I hope to arrive in a good performance.
XE: After all these years are you tired of Ironman racing?
No, I’m not tired of long distance, but as I said before, I love the mountains and cross races and I want to mix all kind of that races on my calendar.
XE: Thank you very much Victor and looking forward to see you in Malta
