“This mountain biking event will be quite sui generis, as it will start at the beach: we’ll take off from the sand and head out through an area the Litibú Golf Course opened up for us, then up the mountain through the village of Higuera Blanca,” explained Belín Villasante, a member of the Organizing Committee.
Approximately 300 riders are expected, most of them from Colima, Nayarit, Jalisco and Michoacán. This event also celebrates the 5th year of the country’s Lijacim marathon series.
Another detail that makes the race unique is that it starts at 4 p.m. in order to give participants time to arrive on Saturday; the sun will also be going down by then, with sunset arriving right at the end of the race. The circuit is approximately 8 kilometers long and the number of laps will depend on the category.
