“We checked out just about every other MTB stage race worldwide prior to registering, none of them could match La Leyenda’s value for money, or for enjoyment and quality of service once we were racing. It was an amazing experience, great having a proper bed every night, and we can’t wait to be back!” Dan Bianco, UK

“My first stage race was a wonderful, once in a lifetime experience in a magical place, where it is difficult, but possible for anyone to finish. If you’re looking for a world class mountain bike stage race, La Leyenda is the best deal out there!” Tim Baker, USA

Race reviews
With 16,000m of climbing, an active volcano crossing and extreme altitude to deal with, Colombia's La Leyenda del Dorado is one of the hardest and most spectacular stage races on the planet.
One of my favorite stage races around the globe. So well and “hearty” organized, spectacular riding from low diary farmer land to coffee plantations into the high volcano mountains with its monster called Nevado del Ruiz the peak of 5400m!"
I've raced in over 25 countries but to arrive into Salamina and be greeted by the whole town lining the streets is something I've never experienced in my career. It was incredible.
