Winners Michael Weiss and Lesley Paterson proved their previous runner-up finishes were not the ceiling of their abilities. Melanie McQuaid showed courage in her all out quest to win her 4th XTERRA World title before collapsing in the final mile. Lance Armstrong said he will come back and pace his race better. Four-time XTERRA World Champion Conrad Stoltz was beaten by his asthma. And 675 XTERRA athletes enjoyed the formidable challenge of the new World Championship course in Kapalua under the heartbreakingly beautiful blue skies of Maui.
