Being an international event, the tests will be judged by an international commissioner, as well as the judging body of Costa Rica.
Ávila added that he expects Costa Rica to obtain several victories in different categories and detailed how everything was given for our country to receive this great event.
“We have been negotiating for months at the Pan American Cycling Confederation (COPACI). Costa Rica has been a pioneer in Enduro in the area. Last year we had the National Championship that was a qualifier for the Enduro World Series.

“We expect a great race, the Pan-American Enduro title will be in dispute, which will also qualify for the Enduro World Cup, they have been working hard on the organization, we will use two parks”, he concluded.
