Without any large ascents or great technical difficulty, the tracks consist of a succession of trails that are full of flow and will surely not disappoint.

The first stage will consist of approximately 68 km and 1,900 m of positive elevation gain, in which bikers will enjoy unique and magnificent landscapes. Meanwhile, the second stage will take in a faster terrain free of major climbs, which will see competitors link from one path to another, completing approximately 55 km and 2,000 meters of positive elevation gain.
With an unforgettable experience for fans of MTB taking place over two days, the format is ideal for those starting out in the world of stage racing. Designed with users in mind, competitors can look forward to an intense weekend with two days of competition and the very best mountain biking. The event’s location also makes it a perfect family event. There is little to add about the merits of the whole area of the Costa Brava, which is fast becoming a world-class cycling destination.
