Mountain Bike Ayiti Race is on!
Earlier this year, IMBA Trail Solutions assisted Travelcology and MTB Ayiti with the layout and feasibility of a potential mountain bike stage race in Haiti. With a lot of fanfare it is now official. The MTB Ayiti Race is a go. With an 80 mile course planned with over 10,000 feet of climbing in some of the roughest, most beautiful terrain around it promises to be an unforgettable time. Check out the story recently from PRI: http://www.theworld.org/2012/09/haiti-bike-race/. The eye opener is the virtual tour near the end of the article. The amazing terrain can only be described as highly variable. Imagine riding in a full urban experience in Port au Prince, transitioning to steep karst topography in the remote mountains and finally descending down to the southern coast and the beach town of Jacmel. The race will be a remarkable experience in an even more remarkable landscape.
