Mel Goes 2-For-2

Melanie McQuaid of Canada looks to be in good early season form as she won for the second consecutive week on the XTERRA Championship circuit. The three-time XTERRA World Champion gained a 3:30 advantage over AVIA teammate Shonny Vanlandingham during the swim, which would end up being the difference. Shonny, the reigning XTERRA World Champ, actually posted faster bike and run splits but couldn’t make up the time lost in the swim and finished 41 seconds behind Melanie. AVIA athletes Suzie Snyder and Emma Garrard both had solid races and finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
