Round one of the Endurance Pipasa MTB Series will take place in Patarrá, Costa Rica, just one week before the Pan American Championships next spring. The UCI category C1 event is scheduled for March 15 and will serve as a warm up for the Continental Championships as well as a chance to collect extra UCI points for racers looking to improve their starting positions at World Cups.
Racers will tackle a 39 mile (63km) single-lap event with 6,100 feet (1860m) of climbing. The race is being promoted by Rafael Pacheco of Eventos Deportivos. Pacheco has been promoting events for seven years.
