From February 12th to 15th a select group of 80 riders will cross 150km from the Andes Mountains to the Pacific Ocean in the extremely challenging Andes Pacifico presented by Santa Cruz, a competition that is set to compete against the most established enduro events in the world.


The 80 specially selected riders from England, Ecuador, New Zealand, Mexico, Scotland, USA, Australia, Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Argentina, Venezuela, South Africa, Canada and Chile have begun to arrive in Chile and start preparations for the four day event.


Big names attending include the current Enduro World Series Champion Jerome Clementz, Chilean National Champion Nico Prudencio, Enduro World Series Director Chris Ball, photographers Sven Martin, Gary Perkyn, and Dave Trumpore, plus many other industry members.


Each day riders will start the liaisons either via chair lift or shuttle to reach the highest points and begin the downhill with over 2500 meters of vertical descent per day. After several special stages each day the riders will arrive at camp where they will have their tents set-up for them, bathrooms with showers and most importantly - good food!


The race includes:
• Four days of competition
• 80 competitors
• 11,000 meters cumulative descent
• 5200 meters in cumulative elevation
• Total 153 kilometers of competition

The race schedule will be as follows:
• Wednesday, February 12: La Parva - Nature Sanctuary
• Thursday February 13: Sanctuary - Chicureo
• Friday February 14: Caleu - Olmue – La Dormida
• Saturday February 15: The Canela - Puchuncavi

In keeping with enduro events around the world, the Andes Pacifico includes liaisons and special stages but the main difference is that here there is no time limit to complete the liaisons.

 This doesn't look fun. Where is the parking lot where cyclists can spend most their day talking shit about others?

 I've ridden at the locations from 3 of the 4 days, assisted by a truck, and believe me, you couldn't finish it in a day no matter what nationality you are and even if you used a motorcycle. It's gonna be a great race.

 Keep an eye on this race, Specialized is going to have a couple of prototypes on this race. One of them is the 2016 enduro.
  • + 2
 Did you mean to write 2016 or 2015?
  • + 2
 The current enduro still has one more year.

 Soooo that means you are talking about 2015 or 2016?
  • + 1
 2016 ,You need to have at least 3 years on a current model, the really populars like the Stumpjumper get some times 4 years. The Stumpy is due for a makeover for 2015.

 Have a hot breakfast cooked for you; jump in a minibus, get chauffeured to the day's high point; ride downhill to a massage and a hot dinner; pick your glamping tent. These are double-hard bastards - lucky they get paid well...

 Chile is like a whole country of California weather and terrain, without the taxes. Definitely have to get there someday.

 The ride looks awesome and it looks like most posters are out of enduro jokes or at least good ones. This is also awesome. I can't spell but su clima a la playa is muy bien.

 Alright, if this doesn't define what really ENDURO is! I don't know who or what can.

 I didn't understand a lick spoken, but it was sick, nonetheless.

 One of the best video I have ever seen. Just pity that no translation!

 EPIC!!!! why can´t i win the lottery???

 Why is descent measured in metres and ascent measured in feet?..
  • + 1
 Gee nice observation-got to be a typo as if there was only 1700 m elevation......even starting from the top of mt everest wouldn't give you that type of descent. Weird. May be they use sky lifts for the rest of the elevation gain.

 Seems like very little if it isn't a typo! I would hope it is, could manage 5000ft of climbing in a day! Looks like a cool event anyway, I'd love to take part in something like this, my fitness is way off though.

 I've noticed they are riding and searching for kickers to jump. It's got to be the gist of enduro.
