The race area and route will be announced closer to the race. We are excited to be bringing racers to a brand new area featuring the steep jungle loam descents that Costa Rica is famous for. All stages will be raced blind with no pre-ride or walk. Expect varied terrain from steep jungle gnar to smooth jungle flow and the occasional high-speed backroad. Stage lengths will vary from 4-15 minutes, with 3 to 4 stages per day plus a prologue on day one. Riders should be comfortable spending 3-6 hrs in the saddle with as much as 1500m of climbing in one day. Transfers will be a mix of pedaling and shuttles to maximize daily descending. Costa Rica’s mountains are steep and unrelenting so solid technical riding skills are a must.
GETTING HERE / TRANSPORT
Costa Rica is easily accessed from anywhere around the world. You will need to land yourself in San Jose on the 20th of February. Accommodation will be provided at Barcelo Hotel the evening before we depart for the race camp. Racers will be returned to Barcelo in the early evening of the 25th. Your hotel stay for those two nights is included in the race entry fee. All transfers for you and your equipment to and from the race venue are provided.
