This stage is simple, with a long and constant uphill on a wide road. The stage might be short, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be fun! The scenery is incredible and you will enjoy the downhill trails to the fullest.

You will start at noon and travel downhill on a wide road. You will pass through Neltume and begin a 22-kilometer climb on an interior road toward Remeco.

You will face 900 meters of uneven terrain with an average 4% grade — a piece of cake for a mountain biker! Halfway through the climb, the road will narrow and turn back toward the campsite. You will be cycling through the heart of the Valdivian forest, where the coigue, lenga and raulíes trees will take your breath away. In a mere five kilometers, you will have reached Neltume and lost all the elevation you gained. The curves and degraded land make for a truly spectacular descent!

From Neltume, only three kilometers remain to the finish line. You will have completed a full and extraordinary day of mountain biking!
