Concept

Trans Vallarta is an event promoted by MTB-Enduro (The Enduro national series main promoter in México) that will challenge riders on a 5-day backcountry race with special timed stages and non-timed transitions over millenial trails used in the past by native communities to communicate with each other and exchange goods along the Sierra Madre Occidental, México. This trail system is well recognized as the best place to ride bikes in Mexico.

*Most of the transitions will be assisted by shuttles.


Race Format

Based on the “Enduro” racing protocol this race will be an individually race with 12-14 timed stages with an average of 90% of descending and the other 10% a mix of flat sections and short climbs. Some of the transitions will be pedally transitions and some other ones will be shuttle assisted.

Every day has to be completed on a pre-established overall time, otherwise a time penalty will be applied to the participant. The total sum of the timed stages will be the final result of the racer.
