Luis Figueroa, Colombia.  Amateur racer and oldest rider ever in La Leyenda

"I’m showing it. If you have a positive attitude and you really want to achieve it, you can do it. It’s a hard race, but a beautiful one that will reward you in many ways. Anyone should come to race. I'm a Legend and it's a dream to finish.”

Christoph Sauser, Switzerland. 4 x World Champion

"It's a race that's really close to my heart. I love Colombia, the landscapes, the organisation and the crowds."

 

Tim Baker, USA. Amateur racer

"My first stage race was a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience in a magical place, where it is difficult, but possible for anyone to finish.”

 

Kathy Jaramillo, Colombia. Amateur racer

"Lush nature, demanding routes, an impeccable organisation, and only one option, give your all on the bike!"

 

Fernando Mattar, Brazil. Amateur racer

"La Leyenda was more than a race, it was a stage in my life of learning and personal fulfilment. Colombia welcomed us with love, by the far the best experiencia of my life on a bicycle.”

 

José Martínez, Colombia. Amateur racer

"When I decided to race La Leyenda, my heart told me it was a crazy idea. After becoming a Finisher I realised it'd be a crazy idea not to repeat it!"
