2015 La Ruta de los Conquistadores Recon Camp

When a bike race gets billed as the "most grueling mountain bike race in the world" year after year, you want to go in as prepared as you can. The best way to be prepared is to recon the course in training so you are familiar with the challenges and opportunities you'll face during the race. CTS has conducted recon camps on the La Ruta courses (they change) for several years and they have been a key to consistently getting our athletes across the final finish line. If you want to race La Ruta and give yourself a better chance to not just finish but also enjoy yourself and perform up to - and beyond - your expectations, then this camp must be part of your preparations.
