Bikes await their riders at the start of stage 2
Volcanos, climbs above the clouds and a treacherous descent on the day's route
The 500 racers at La Ruta de los Conquistadores faced a 79km stage 2 from near San Jose to Turrialba over the Irazú Volcano and past the Turrialba Volcano in Costa Rica on Friday.
From San Jose, the riders climbed high above the valleys below, rising above the clouds. A long pavement climb took them up toward the volcanos and a treacherous descent over a wet, rocky road challenged riders on the downhill.
