Super tropical, technical, and rowdy trail. As always was epic hanging out with all of the trail community and the local culture.

The courses, the landscape, the race itself, the trails, the weather, the finish line atmosphere. I loved everything! I knew it would be a great event and that's why I decided to be there. Thank you very much to the organization for showing us that beautiful side of Vallarta.
