Concept

Transierra Norte is a multiday Mountain Bike race where amateur and expert racers meet up to celebrate the Mexican famous tradition better known as “Day of the Dead”. Racing bikes along the North Mountain Range of Oaxaca, the intention of this event is to push the Trail exploration to have new and blind trails to race every year, also support the growth of the outdoor industry in the communities of the Sierra Norte of Oaxaca and promote the culture and festivities in Oaxaca City while we all make a bike party filling it with an authentic Mexican experience

Race Format

Based on the “Enduro” racing protocol this race will be an individually race with 12-16 timed stages with an average of 90% of descending and the other 10% a mix of flat sections and short climbs. Some of the transitions will be pedally transitions and some other ones will be shuttle assisted.

Every day has to be completed on a pre-established overall time; otherwise a time penalty will be applied to the participant. The total sum of the timed stages will be the final result of the racer.
