The Santa Cruz Andes Pacifico Montenbaik Enduro is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience mountain biking on an Andean scale!
Coming soon in February 2017, we're inviting riders to discover some of the highest, wildest and funnest trails these far away lands have to offer. All set against the epic backdrop of the world’s longest mountain chain.
The Santa Cruz Andes Pacifico Montenbaik Enduro is the original adventure gravity race in central Chile. Starting at over 3,600 meters above sea level amidst snow-capped peaks, riders experience five days of stage racing down towards the Pacific Ocean, clocking-up a staggering 12,000 meters in vertical drop along the way!
This unique event focuses on uncovering forgotten trails and progressively refining them into a connected mountain bike network. Now in it’s fourth consecutive year, the Santa Cruz Andes Pacifico Montenbaik Enduro is constantly evolving. From the infamous “anti-grip” dust at high elevations, to the lush geography of the wine valleys and amazing vistas of the south pacific coastline, we are always surprising competitors with a diverse variety of terrain and 2017 looks set to be our most exciting yet.

[quoten] For me, Chile equals good vibes! Every time I arrive there it feels like home. Chileans always welcome us with open arms, smoking asados (barbecues) and fresh piscolas (Chilean drink!) Oh yeah, I should probably mention the trails too! Amazing. Long long descents and with so much variation you keep buzzing every day. If you thinking about doing it just don't hesitate... or you'll honestly miss one of the best riding weeks of your life. Every year the trails, organization, food etc all keep pushing forward. That’s why I keep coming back. It’s one of my biggest challenges of the year. You should make it one of yours!!! Iago Garay: Santa Cruz SRAM team[/quoten]
