Guatemala will host a new three-day stage race called El Reto del Quetzal from October 5 to 7 for teams of two in open men, open women, mixed, and masters categories. It will start in San Juan Sacatepequez and finish three days later in Coban while passing through semi-desert areas, tropical rain forests, and through the clouds and dense fog of Coban.

Trek VW's Sue Haywood, who was on the women's winning team at the TransRockies, and Lea Davison are favorites set to compete in the women's race. Tinker Juarez (Cannondale) and 2006 Pan Am Champion Deiber Esquivel are among those that will contest the men's race.
