La Leyenda del Dorado is a multi-stage mountain bike race offering adventurous teams of two the opportunity to immerse themselves in the magical landscapes of Colombia and ride their hearts out.
The meticulously crafted 7 stage route pays homage to Colombia, its astonishing and varied landscapes and rich cycling history. As formidable as it is breathtaking, the Leyenda race route tackles an extraordinary variety of terrains and climatic conditions – scorching river valleys, snow topped volcanoes and everything in between – sometimes in the course of the same day.
The race is open for UCI professionals and amateurs, therefore it offers UCI points for those at the front of the race. Some of the top professionals racing this year include Christoph Sauser, the man who doesn’t understand retirement, Sonya Looney, Hans Becking, Hannah Barnes, Esther Suss, Leonardo Paez and the Buff Scott MTB Team.
Along the way, full-service, professional rider support and accommodation almost exclusively in comfortable hotel beds will enable participants to focus solely on giving their very best while they discover why Colombia is truly one of the most exciting and challenging mountain bike destinations on the planet, and why La Leyenda is the Everest of Mountain Biking.
