Jim Thijs (Tomac Bikes/Notubes) won the off-road duathlon in Putte, Belgium. Thijs dominated the race from start to finish. After the first run Thijs had a 20sec lead on his closest rival. On the cyclocross-style mtb track he could distance himself even more on his Tomac Type X hardtail. The Belgian Xterra triathlon specialist could cruise to the finish line in the second run with an over one minute lead.
Thijs will do one more off-road duathlon in Belgium before making a trip to the US in April to race Xterra Las Vegas and the Sea Otter mtb races.
