Mountain bike riders to Survivor DR
Registration was closed in less than 14 hours after it opened, Diario Libre reports. Survivor DR is an extreme mountain biking event that will take bikers on an unknown route through the hills of El Pedregal, Villa Altagracia, Villa Mella and Yamasa from 14-15 June. Only 30% of those who began the designated route in the previous five versions of the race have completed the trek. A total of 330 cyclists in 110 teams will be taking on the challenge.
The route starts and ends in El Pedregal, behind the La Isabela International Airport in northern Santo Domingo. The route is divided in two days. Some 30 kilometers will be covered on the first day, 14 June, followed by another 100 on the second day, 15 June. Organizer David Fernandez says that mountain bikers from Costa Rica and Colombia will be taking part. He said that Dominican cycling champion Wendy Cruz would be competing, as well as Karim Mella, the first Dominican to reach the summit of Mount Everest. The categories are master and mixed (including at least one woman).
