April 12, 2011 (Lake Las Vegas, NV) – Sundog Active Sports Eyewear (ASE) Genuine Performer™ Melanie McQuaid of Victoria, BC kicked off the 2011 XTERRA season by capturing the 2011 XTERRA West Championship. The three-time XTERRA World Champion conquered the frigid water, tough course, and strong field for a thrilling start to 2011 at the Aston Monte Lago Village Resort in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada.
Last year, McQuaid captured her fourth USA National XTERRA Championships, plus the 2010 Canadian and European titles.
McQuaid won the XTERRA West Championship wearing her Sundog Eyewear ASE Mela-Lens™ Raptors that she helped design.
“The great thing about Sundog Eyewear is how they just keep getting better through innovation and attention to detail,” said McQuaid. “The Mela-Lens™ technology is flawless and still maintains the crystal clear vision that Sundog provides. I love the Raptor model as it is light, durable, and provides reliable eye protection I look for when riding at high speed.”
McQuaid’s Sundog Eyewear Mela-Lens™ Raptor sunglasses feature Sundog Eyewear’s breakthrough Mela-Lens™ technology. “Mela” is short for Melanin, a naturally produced pigment that acts as a sunscreen protecting the skin from ultraviolet light.
