Shortly after the end of the XTerra World Championship held in Maui, Omar González, coach of Javier Gómez Noya, made these moving statements about the performance of the Spanish triathlete.
"I do not know what to say anymore. Full of pride and satisfaction. This guy never ceases to amaze me, the circuit was tremendously tough and the rivals were very very good, great world MTB specialists, I wanted them to beat him to find a new motivation for this winter but Mr. Javier Gómez Noya is a phenomenon. He has won races with drafting (European Championship and the grand final in Auckland, in addition to the Olympic medal achieved in London) he has won without drafting on a time trial bike (in Miami and Hy-Bee) and now he has the luxury of winning the world championship of XTerra on the mountain bike, what I said ... I do not know what to say. Ah! He could only sleep 3 hours because of the tsunami, but as they have said around here the tsunami is called Javier Gómez Noya, the Spanish pride »
The Galician triathlete, who has not stopped offering us great moments during this 2012 season, prevailed in XTerra against his rivals where there were triathletes of the stature of Conrad Stoltz, Josiah Middaugh, Victor del Corral, among others, great MTB specialists , once again proving his great worth.
With this show, Javier Gómez Noya, has proven to be an out of the ordinary in any objective that is proposed, being the same Ivan Raña who made the perfect prognosis for this test only a few days before the test “Javi is going to put at least a minute and a half or two minutes for the specialists in the water, then they will try to cut the differences in the partial mountain bike but as do not manage to arrive with a notable difference to T2 I have no doubt that Javi will win, and if they arrive at the same time they will be considered dead. Javi is sure to bring out his quality as an Olympic distance runner, he is also a very good cyclist so I don't think he will have any problems doing well on the MTB "
In this way, Noya ends an excellent season, with an eye on the 2013 with new objectives and new illusions for this out of series Triathlon.
