2019 Route & Race Information

La Leyenda del Dorado 2019: 28 July - 3 August

With earlybird registrations selling out in less than a day make sure you sign up now so you don’t miss out on the incredible 2019 route and your chance to become a Legend!

Route planning starts over a year in advance with a team of route designers in collaboration with local riders searching for the best possible trails. Each year we will be building new singletrack routes and maintaining the existing trails with the help of local MTB clubs. Although the route changes every year due to Colombia’s amazing landscapes and mountains there will always be a lot of climbing, cold high altitude passes, hot tropical valleys and everything in between.

Several months before the event in January a trial ride of the whole route is done by key staff and crew members, any necessary route adjustments are made and the route is signed off for all the racers who will take on the challenge of La Leyenda.

After the trial ride route, stats, stage descriptions and elevation profiles will be made available here on the website. Then a few days before the race GPS data for each stage will be sent to all registered racers. Don’t worry if you don’t have a GPS, the route is sign posted according to UCI standards.
