The city of La Serena, in Northern Chile, will host round two of the Copa Chile Jeep series on October 4-5. La Serena is a special venue in that is considered one of the most difficult race circuits in Chile.

"This circuit will test the physical and technical capacity for all the riders," said Pan-American Champion and Olympian Cristóbal Silva of the cross country course where Saturday's event will be run.

On the other hand, the downhill course, full of rocks, jumps and loose dirt, is expected to take about five minutes when raced on Sunday. National Champion and round one winner Antonio Leiva will be back to race again.

"This course is physically exhausting and technical which is why it challenges," said Leiva.

Among the locals will be Olympian Francisca Campos, ready to win on home ground.
