Each year Titan Tropic MTB Race in Cuba continues to work with local communities to build new trail infrastructure to incorporate into the race, helping to create a recreational bicycle community and improving the event routes over the years. Many racers brought their families, who followed the race via bus, all organized by Titan Tropic.
This issue, we’re putting the bike in the forefront as Victor Prestinary follows the Titan Tropic MTB event in Cuba where more than 150 riders spent 5 days crossing the jungles and sleeping in tents.
There are some incredible trails around like a vista point we hiked to from the camp at Horizontes Villa Soroa. In Viñales, we visited the Mural de la Prehistoria (a huge contemporary mural), and Cuevas del Indio (a bat-filled cave with boat tour).
Much of our conversation is spent on the topic of the newly released issue #138, but we also briefly mention UPS e-bikes, the mountain bike race through Cuba, Stig Brockx wakes up from a coma, and Colnago helps China get to the WorldTour.
A day to remember at the Titan Tropic, with a stage of long mileage in which the first athletes to arrive have spent more than 4 hours and the last ones had until 10 hours of time limit to complete it.
