November 7, 2018

Hundreds of mountain bikers from across the world came to Costa Rica to compete in La Ruta de los Conquistadores last week. After three days of grueling terrain, Josep Betalú came out on top again.

Betalú won the race last year and took the title again on Saturday. Lance Armstrong also competed in the race and finished 12th after overcoming a tough start. Check out some of the best shot from the 2018 Ruta de los Conquistadores.
