Following a successful continental (aka Pan American) mountain bike championships held in Brazil in October of 2006, the Villa de la Angostura, in Argentina, will host next year's continental championships in March 2007. In 2006, American Mary McConneloug won the elite women's race while Columbian Hector Leonardo Paez Leon, also the winner of the 2006 La Ruta stage race, took the men's elite race.

The Latin American championships will happen later in the year: June 29 - July1 in Medellin, Columbia. Look for Paez Leon to make his mark on his home turf.
