Publishers In Their Own Words: XTERRA Planet

The XTERRA Planet
by Trey Garman, Magazine Editor and Vice President of XTERRA

TEAM Unlimited, the owners and producers of XTERRA, recently launched “The XTERRA Planet” – a quarterly magazine dedicated to the people, places and races of XTERRA.

The name for the publication is a spoof on the fictitious “Daily Planet,” the Metropolis newspaper that employed Clark Kent (aka Superman). And, just like that periodical, “The XTERRA Planet” will cover the exploits of superheroes in our community.

We’ve been building this magnificent collection of story ideas and images since our first race back in 1996, and now with this magazine we’ll be able to showcase the amazing people and incredible photography we’ve gathered along the way.

The late Steve Larsen graces the cover of the inaugural issue, a tribute to a man who made great contributions to XTERRA through the years. Other features include dramatic photo spreads, a piece on Jamie Whitmore’s “Miracle Twins”, a destination feature on Henderson, Nevada where the XTERRA West Championship will be held, fun Q and A’s with the sports biggest stars, updates from races around the world, and a story on one of the most successful trail run bloggers of our time.
