Queensland’s Naturally Refreshing Sunshine Coast came alive as the elite of Australia’s Off Road Racing fraternity descended on the spectacular hinterland terrain to tackle a weekend of action packed off road events including Cross Triathlon, Trail Running and Mountain Biking.

TreX Sunshine Coast | CHAMPION Ben Allen

TreX Sunshine Coast was the finale of a seven race national series and it was reigning Australian Champion Ben Allen (B&J Racing) 2:09:50 who won a hard fought battle in the elite men’s race. Allen lead from the start and didn’t look like relinquishing his lead.

Allen said;

The Sunshine Coast is one of those very rare places that can offer everything an athlete look for in one exciting destination. From the spectacular backdrop of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland to the expansive swim in beautiful Ewen Maddock Dam, to the custom built MTB trails which twist and turn amongst picturesque fern filled rain forests to the running trails with the most amazing vistas at every turn.  Landsborough and the Sunshine Coast has got the lot!

“I’m happy to put in a solid performance in all three disciplines and come away with a win. It’s been a slow start to the season for me, but every race I do I’m getting faster and more and more confident. I’m excited to keep the ball rolling as I head to Europe in a few weeks.”

Allen and his wife, Jacqui head to XTERRA Tahiti for the World Tour Race on the 11th May!
