Concept

Andes Pacifico is an Mountain Bike Enduro race that last five days with liaisons and special stages that run crosswise the Geography of Chile.

Our mission is to show Chile and it his ancestral trails made ​​by cowboys and Indians from the Andes to the Pacific Ocean.

The competition starts +3500 meters above the sea and crosses westward over valleys of different geographies, landscapes and vegetation to reach the Pacific Ocean after 5 days and +12,000 meters of descent.

During these five days the riders will be challenged by very technical trails and physical difficulty, for isolated geographies where the good state of mind is one of the most needed to finish this competition.

Format

The competition is based on the sum of the times of each racer’s  (no teams) special stage (SS or PE in spanish). There will be from 2 to 5 SS per day. The liaisons are not timed, but there is a deadline for the last stage of the day.

Riders can manage their time to complete the liaisons or transfers. The organization will close the stage at a certain time, which will be communicated in advance. This track closure is based on the safety of the participants.

The times are registered through our Sportident Chip system, for which each competitor has a personal and non-transferable Chip that is delivered each morning before departing the competition.

The Chip are owned by Montenbaik and are no disposable. Each lost Chip, the participant must pay the value of it (USD $ 100.00), so it is the rider’s responsibility to attached it correctly.
