The Las Catalinas mountain biking trails stretch through the heart of a 1000 acre tropical dry forest nature reserve, featuring a mix of technical climbs, fluid flow riding, and challenging descents along more than 42km of singletrack. Race along coastal cliffside, through forested hills, and down into the rich tropical valleys as you compete for the best time.
Ranging from September 1, 2019 to May 31, 2020, the Las Catalinas Reto route features categories for both local and non-local riders in male, female, under 15, and team divisions, with cash awards for fastest ascent and descent, fastest overall time, most completed loops, and more, all tracked through the Strava app.
