DANAO City will be hosting next year’s Xterra Off-road Triathlon, Sunrise Events Inc. (SEI), the race’s organizer, announced today.
Princess Galura, general manager of SEI, met with Cebu’s Fifth District Representative Ramon “Red” Durano VI earlier today along with Cebu Provincial Administrator Mark Tolentino and Cebu Provincial Sports Commission vice chairman Miguel Magpale where they discussed the city’s hosting of the race.
The race is returning to Cebu for the fist time since Liloan hosted the event in 2014.
Liloan had actually hosted the event for four years.
Albay hosted the event in 2015 and 2016. The province actually signed a three-year contract with SEI but decided to discontinue hosting the race for the third straight time.
The race is scheduled on April 14 next year. Registration will start on October 26.
Durano VI and Tolentino are excited about the city’s hosting. SDanao has urged the SEI to discover other towns and cities in Cebu that can be a potential venue for a triathlon race, according to Galura.
The race features a 1.5-kilometer swim, 35k off-road bike course and 10k trail run.
Danao is also bidding to host an international mountain bike competition and the Palarong Pambansa next year.

Things to Do
Danang is famous for the 30–km stretch of white–sand beach within 100 km of three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Imperial City of Hue, Hoi An Ancient Town and the My Son ruins. The city is also home to the Museum of Cham Sculpture. Founded by a French institute in the 1915, the museum contains the best collection of stone artwork from the Cham, a Hindu civilization that inhabited central Vietnam until the 14th century.
The P5X is a radical departure from anything Cervélo has designed in the past and took three years to develop. The ultimate goal of this bike is to meet the specific needs of triathletes by offering an abundance of storage with an easy to adjust frame, making it arguably the most user-friendly superbike available. While the practicality of this bike is commendable, the price will put it out of reach for the vast majority of interested triathletes. The bike comes in two builds: the Shimano Ultegra Di2 option has an MSRP of $11,000 and the SRAM eTap model (pictured) has an MSRP of $15,000.
Cervélo partnered with travel case manufacturer Biknd to create a custom case for the P5X. The case has internal airbags, can store two sets of wheels and requires minimal disassembly. MSRP is $850.
Biknd P5X Travel Case
This view shows the P5X with the bars folded down packed away in the Biknd custom case.
Cervélo designed the P5X around disc brakes for two main reasons: they could make the frame more aerodynamic and give the bike better stopping power. 160mm front and rear rotors give the P5X plenty of stopping power and 12mm thru axles increase stiffness.
Cervélo partnered with ENVE to design the super clean front end of the bike. The base bar can be flipped up or down, but the bigger story is that this is actually a two-piece component that folds in half to make the bike easier to pack.
The Speedcase is a clever storage addition to the frame that attaches to the downtube. Bottle mounts on top of the Speedcase add versatility and a level of customization to the bike. You could potentially choose to race with the Speedcase and a bottle for an Ironman, Speedcase and no no bottle for a half, or no Speedcase for an Olympic or sprint.
Unlike the Speedcase, the Stealthbox storage compartment is built into the frame. This is likely where you’d store flat repair items like spare tubes and tire levers.
