Press Release: Ocean Sierra


From the creators of TranSierra Norte, Ocean Sierra is a new One-of-a-kind Multi-Day Enduro experience through the depths of the Sierra Jalisco, Mexico. A magical mountainous region where the elements of nature combine for the perfect ride, ending in the pacific ocean with cold beers, raicilla, surf lessons and the pacific ocean. Sounds like a dream, right?

The event consists of 4 days of blind enduro racing, with more than 16 stages and 6000 ft of free vertical descent. The first race day is in Mascota Jalisco, a small town in the middle of the Sierra Madre Occidental. Mascota has long, loamy, steep technical and gnarly trails with some of the best riding in the country. After that, the steep, loose and off-camber trails of Puerto Vallarta await. The last race day is in Sayulita, where the riders will surf the trails one day and the waves the other having a chill out day after the race. Expect long stages, gnarly trails, amazing views, party shuttles, climbing, amazing food and cold beer after each day.

As pioneers in multi-day enduro events in Mexico, our commitment to the growth of the communities around the trails and the creation of new ones is a top priority. Ocean Sierra is a true-to-the-culture experience. Party trains down steep freshly built loamers with a Mexican twist is what we are all about!

 I just registered. It's a lot easier to convince your wife to go on a bike vacation when there's a beach for her to lay on while I ride.

 I'm guessing 1650 is USD? Andes Pacifico is only 1200 for a 3-day race course.

 Ok, thats about $400 per day for the Andes Pacifico (5 day race is $2000 so same $/day). This race is 4 days of racing so it comes to $412 per day. Yes there are some cheaper races out there but this one is pretty much in line with most trans race costs.

 That's a helluva deal! I just spent $2k to race Trans Cascadia for 4 days and it was in my "backyard". Granted, a fair portion of that entry goes toward building the trails we raced. It's time to talk to my wife about a Mexican vacation in February.

 @gilby82: Yeah, Cascadia is always the most expensive one out there BY FAR. Trail stewardship, chefs, luxury type stuff etc. I get it, just hard to wrap my gypsy brain around that one given the other trans races out there.

 @wilsonians: no, this event is 3 days of racing. Go look at the schedule. It's a 4 day event, with the first day being registration, check-in and what not.

1650 / 3 = $550/day so it's actually more expensive per day of racing than Trans Cascadia @$500/day and Andes Pacifico @ $400/day

 @swenzowski: Interesting, yeah youre right. I saw their schedule and figured it was 4 days since they state '4 days of blind racing' on their website. But their itinerary says 'Chill out day' on the 20th, whatever that means....maybe its still 'racing' but more party trains? Yeah so on a $/race day average its on par with Cascadia ($2300/4 = $575) which is nuts especially given the location.

 @wilsonians: ah k, I confused the 5 day Andes Pacifico price with Trans Cascadia. Didn't realize TC was $2300. Damn that's pricey.

Stupid Canadian dollar sucking right now, 1650 usd is 2055 CAD which is a lot for three days of racing.

I think to make the cost of the flight worth while for one of these stage races I'd want to stay for at least a week after the race and enjoy a holiday.

 How are you going to get to each of them? Where are you going to sleep? Who feeds you and wheres the open bar? Do you normally ride with a medic behind you and have massage practitioners waiting at your camp? If so, I want to come ride with you. It's not just the riding of trails you're paying for. It's the experience.
