Next July 26, I will race again in Guanaride. This is an endurance race that takes place on the beautiful Guanacaste and Punta Arena provinces of Costa Rica, placed on the northwest of the country. During five days, more than 400 km have to be ridden through the different natural settings that Costa Rica has to offer as the beach, the mountains, the forest and hidden tracks in the Peninsula. This year's race has incorporated one more day of competition than last year. I will use Suunto T6 with wireless heart belt and Bike Pod to gather useful performance data during the race.

Costa Rica holds five percent of the world's biodiversity. Nature has provided to this country unique and astonishing natural reserves, making it a very attractive setting for riders who want to discover beautiful Central American landscapes while at the same time, ride and finish one of the toughest mountain bike endurance races in America.

Once the race is finished, I will travel south of Costa Rica with the race organizers and photographer to discover other interesting mountain bike tracks. We are planning to spend around 10 days on our ‘discovery’ trip. I will use Suunto X9i to gather useful position information and then spot those tracks in Google Earth.
