The El Reto del Quetzal will be moving to a new location for its second edition on October 3-5. This year's start will be in Antigua, Guatemala, a small colonial city that was founded in 1543 and declared by UNESCO as a cultural and natural monument. The new venue offers access to the country's best singletrack.

"With this new location we will guarantee 100% satisfaction to all the participants," said promoter Netzer Quan.

Last year's race drew competitors from all over the world including Italy, Australia, Colombia, Venezuela, the US, and Austria and registration for 2008 opens March 17.
