    Javier Gomez Noya has been on a roll throughout the 2012 season. A roll so dominant, not even a tsunami warning could slow him down. A tsunami warning was issued for the entire island of Maui late Saturday night, but it was canceled early Sunday morning.

The event featured a 1.5km swim, a 30km mountain bike ride and a 10km trail run. His winning time of 2 hours, 26 minutes, 54 seconds was extra impressive being that it was Gomez Noya’s first appearance at the race. On the women’s side, Lesley Paterson defended her 2011 XTERRA title finishing in a winning time of 2:44:12.
