Conrad Stoltz is a great partner to Vivo Plus since he is a triathlete. He competes in triathlons and is four time World Champion of the XTERRA Series and ITU Cross Triathlon World Champion of off-road triathlon races.
Stoltz started competing in the multi-sport disciplines of duathlon and triathlon through his involvement in cycling. He is most famous for his exploits in the XTERRA series of off-road triathlons where he claimed the World Championship in his rookie season (starting the season without sponsorship) in 2001 and successfully defended it the following year, and won also in 2007 and 2010.
Stoltz is perhaps best known for his unmatched four world titles on the XTERRA off-road triathlon circuit. In addition to reigning supreme as the current XTERRA World Champion, Stoltz recently set a new record for overall XTERRA career wins, claiming his 39th victory at the XTERRA West Championship in Santa Cruz,CA on May 15, 2011. Three weeks ago, Stoltz traveled to Extremadura, Spain where he prevailed against a packed men’s professional field to secure the inaugural ITU Cross Triathlon World Championship title – his fifth XTERRA World Championship win – on April 30th. Stoltz’ earlier athletic accolades include twice competing in the Olympic Games (Sydney and Athens), winning eight XTERRA USA Championship titles, having won five All Africa Triathlon Championship titles and five South African Triathlon Championship titles and taking the overall win at the renowned Mrs. T’s Chicago Triathlon in 2001.
About The Caveman
Born in Lydenburg (in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa) he now calls Stellenbosch (near the city of Cape Town), South Africa his hometown while he is based in Bend, Oregon, when competing in the United States.
The Human Interest Group (HIG), a Boulder-based athlete management firm, is proud to announce a new partnership with World Champion triathlete Conrad Stoltz. HIG will manage Stoltz’ ongoing sponsor relationships as well as create new partnership opportunities with the talented and versatile South African, known fondly as “The Caveman”.
“Conrad’s success across so many levels of sport is almost unheard of,” said HIG founder and principal, Franko Vatterott, “Yet his dominance and versatility are only a portion of the Caveman’s tremendous appeal to fans of the sport, endemic sponsors and corporate partners alike. He’s a wildly eclectic and entertaining character with a heart the size of his native South Africa. Conrad is fascinated with equipment design and has played a significant role in the development of new products at both Specialized and Avia, two of his major sponsors. And the fact that he’s racing stronger and faster than ever – at the age of 37 – doesn’t exactly hamper his value.”
Stoltz joins HIG’s already impressive athlete roster, including fellow World Champion triathletes Craig Alexander and Julie Dibens and fellow Olympians Laura Bennett and Dirk Bockel. “We’ve been lucky to combine forces with several of the top athletes in the sport,” said Vatterott. “Conrad’s unquestionable talent, along with his charming character and innate marketing and R&D savvy make him a perfect addition to the HIG family,” he continued.
