Three Frenchmen will lead the competition at the Trophy Bike three-stage race in Costa Rica on October 17-19.
Local Costa Rican Pablo Montoya is one of the favorites for the event, but he will have to overcome several top French challengers. Montoya competes in Europe and has won medals at the U23 World Championship and Pan American Games, but marathoner Thomas Dietsch; former World and Olympic Champion Miguel Martinez; and Masters World Champion Lucovic Dubau will all have their sights set on victory, too.
The first stage will begin on October 17 and run 60km from Arenal to Monteverde. The 80km second stage will start in Monteverde and head to Rio Celeste. The final stage is set for 95km from Rio Celeste to Papagayo for a total of 243 km.
