EvansRockal Evans will be based in Sydney for the next three years as he intensifies his qualifying bid for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The Bermudian sailor is vying for one of only three available Olympic spots from the North and South American region. Evans will be involved in training camps and regattas in the same single-handed Finn class that his late grandfather Howard Lee competed in for Bermuda at the Montreal Games in 1976.

“I’ll be doing a racing circuit in Sydney and this is a big boost for my Olympic campaign because I will be settled,” said Evans, who left the island on Monday. “I’ll be training and in the gym every day, so I’ll be more comfortable and focused. I’ll be based there pretty much until the last Olympic qualifier. I’ve been there three times before and probably spent three months there in total. I love it there.”

Duffy XterraAs good as Flora Duffy has become in draft-legal triathlon racing, she is even more dominant when it comes to the off-road version of the sport. The Bermudan took her fourth straight Xterra world title this weekend, leading the entire race. She was so dominant that 26 km into the bike she was already ahead by six minutes.

In the end Barbara Riveros would finish second to the two-time ITU world champ, but was eight-minutes behind. Germany's Laura Philipp, who did her first off-road event in France earlier this year, took third after a "pleasant-surprise" swim that had her fourth out of the water. Xterra European champion Brigitta Poor finished fourth while former Xterra world champ Lesley Patterson finished an astonishing fifth. Patterson was injured after winning the Xterra Pan American Championship in September and was dealing with a stress fracture in her hip, which prevented her from doing any run training.
