Day three started on the other corner of the island, in a place called Nordeste. Riders had to deal with really muddy conditions in the morning due to rain showers. The first stage was on a Cedar Forest Reserve on a mix of wet and loamy black dirt with a few pedal sections. As the day came through, the trails were getting drier until the last stage that took us to the very bottom of a cliff, where the natural pools of Boca da Ribeira sits. First bath of the bikes right after the first stage.Another day in the books and other campsite was settled. This time, in Nordeste.
Tomorrow will be the day of the big traverse, where riders have to cross the island from one point to another through the deep and wild Azorean jungle.
