Scenes from the mountain bike stage race in Costa Rica

La Ruta de los Conquistadores is a unique mountain bike stage race in Costa Rica. In 2012, it takes place over three days, during which riders travel from the west coast of the country on the Pacific Ocean to the Carribean Sea on the east coast.  Plenty of steep climbs and descents and tough terrain await racers, who have come to test themselves. 

These photos from the day before the start and stage 1 of the 20th anniversary edition.
