Ben Allen and Jacqui Slack won Xterra England and Hector Guerra finished fourth to join Helena Erbenova as this year’s Xterra European Tour champions at Vachary Estate in Cranleigh, England today.

It’s the seventh Xterra major victory of the season for Allen, the fourth for Slack, and the third time the “power couple” and reigning Xterra Warrior award winners have took home titles on the same day.

For Guerra, a bad ankle sprain was not enough to keep him from finishing in the top five and winning the tour in his first-full season with Xterra. Helena Erbenova previously wrapped up the women’s title following a dominating mid-season five race win streak.

Meanwhile Yeray Luxem continued to impress, placing third in the race (just six seconds behind course designer and hometown favorite Sam Gardner) and second in the tour. For the women, Muller finished second in the race and jumped past Renata Bucher to place second in the final tour standings.
