Jason McIntyre raced the Xterra World Championship last month in Maui, Hawaii. We've caught up with him to hear about the race, as well as his experience with off-road triathlon. Off-road triathlon, of which Xterra is one branded category, is a niche in multi-sport that is not as familiar to many of us as biking and running on pavement.
