Jun 26, 2017
by copadownhill  
Copa Downhill project started in 2016 with the objective of teaching Peruvian and South American Downhill riders how to race. Establishing similar procedures from the UCI Downhill World Cup races and promoting: responsibility, punctuality, respect, education and social responsibility. Copa Downhill ranking began with Santisimo Downhill 2017 (1st round), the most iconic race in the country and the only one that takes place at Cusco, Peru. The 2nd round took place this past Sunday 25th of June at Lima, Peru. The race took place at Morro Solar, a 2min 30sec track with a loose terrain and an extreme wind power.

Alejandro Paz won the overall with 2:18.417, Sebastian Alfaro was second with 2:25.619 and Juan Pedro Illescas ended third with 2:26.229. Track conditions were insane, more than 100 riders competed and shred every single corner on the track trying to get to the bottom as fast as they could.
