Extreme enduro ride in Panama
Ocean 2 Ocean Panama 2014, is a 93.2mi/150km long extreme enduro ride, organized for the first time, by Panamanians looking for an unique and iconic adventure. On the 9th of November, participants will be gathered at Icacal, Colón, by the Atlantic Coast and will ride through the Panamanian Rainforest and mountains all the way to the Playa Blanca at the Pacific Side.
The route is challenging as it passes through remote areas with many obstacles, streams and rivers, vertical cliffs and a lot of mud. Certainly not a ride for beginners. There are four checkpoints along the way, were each one has access to a main road. On the second check point, called the 3 Hermanas, there will be launch available, gasoline and the emergency crew. Registration is available at 50$ and you can book via email to:firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or call to 507-2652464.
This year the event will be honored to host Chris Birch (2010 RedBull Romanics champion and 3 times Roof of Africa title holder). Other participants are Jerry Curtis, Panamanian, Florida Enduro Champion, Class A, 50+ and many more riders from Salvador and Costa Rica.
So, get ready for the ultimate enduro ride from the Atlantic Coast all the way to the Pacific through the wild rain forests of Panama. Be there!
