Only Three days till the La Ruta de los Conquistadores.

Can you say "Climbing-28,858 feet." It is less than three days until the 14th edition of the La Ruta de los Conquistadores. The event begins on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Today, the organisers held a press conference in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, with some of the top contenders, our man Jeremiah Bishop (Trek-VW).

Also on hand is our 24 hour Natonal Champ Rebecca and from what we understand the field is 40 deep.

Total distance: 176.4 miles.
Total climbing: 28,858 feet.
Total maximum finish time: 35 hours.
