Xterra, coming back to the beginning

For some TRI's started by doing sprints or local events, for some Xterra's was the saving grace. Many wanted to stay in mountain biking but needed more, Xterra came at the right time. Ned Overland went from the king of Mt. Biking to the king of Xterra right out of the box. He really got many into the sport. For a good change up from the road, try some dirt.
