MORGAN LAKE — Daniel Shaw made his first XTERRA race a memorable one.

The Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, resident outraced the field to win the 12th annual XTERRA La Grande Saturday at Morgan Lake with a time of 2 hours, 19 minutes and 37 seconds.

“I’ve done triathlons before, but never an XTERRA,” Shaw. said “I’m happy. I figured these would be good.”

Shaw was the sixth person out of the water after the 1K swim to start the race.

He improved to third place after the 25K bike portion. But his time of 39 minutes, 40.8 seconds in the 10K run was nine minutes faster than anyone else.

“The course was hard,” Shaw said. “The mountain biking portion was slow because you can’t go that fast on those steep, steep hills.”

Shaw said he did a lot of swimming and biking to prepare for the race, but a foot injury slowed him down in his running preparation.

“I haven’t been running at all. But, I come from a running background,” Shaw said.

Mathieu Signoretty finished in second place with a time of 2:25:17.4, while Dominic Clay of La Grande came in third place with a time of 2:25:56.9.

Last year’s winner, Kevin Donovan of Seattle, Wash., placed fourth with a time of 2:30:23.2.

Sara Lloyd was the first female to cross the line, finishing 16th overall with a time of 3:00:38.3.

Race organizer Brian Sather of La Grande Ride said the course was a little slower than last year because of a 1.5-mile section that was added to the bike course.

Sather said he doesn’t plan on making any more changes for future races, saying that the course has been developed as much as it can be.

“The course is what it is at this point,” he said. “There is only so much land we can use.”
