Muito puxado fisicamente, muita descida, muito pedal em plano e pouca subida, vários níveis técnicos ao longo do percurso. Percurso que começa no centro da ilha, passamos em vereda de abismo ao lado do mar do norte e acabamos a nível do mar no sul.

Amazing track with varied terrain. Some extreamly difficult rocky shoots. The second and third quater has allot of slick rocks and compacted clay that becomes very spicy in the rain. So if its raining do not attempt unless your near pro level or have a death wish. BAILING TO THE LEFT ISNT ADVISED, You have been warned.
