Way to go! Shonny V!! This weekend Shonny proved she is the best biker on the Maui course by posting the fastest time for the 3rd out of the 4 years she’s raced at the XTERRA World Championships. With 15 NORBA National race wins and three NORBA Series Championship titles, Vanlandingham is the most successful rider in NORBA history-man or woman. XTERRA has brought some variation to her routine and given her a new challenge to tackle. Though a sprained ankle was a limiting factor, Shonny toughed it out to bring home bronze and the fastest American title.
Now that the XTERRA season is over, you’ll find Shonny V. preparing for the Trail Running Championships in Bend, OR, beginning base training for Sea Otter and other early season mountain bike events, and cultivating coffee to fuel her growing caffeine addiction in Captain Cook, Hawaii.
