This is the first official Olimpic Cross Country circuit in Aragón. It seeks to be a training place for local and foreign cyclists, and also a spot for XCO races and events.
The XCO races take place in closed circuits between 4 km and 6 km long and the cyclists must complete several laps. They usually have demanding climbs up and some singletrack descents with natural and artificial obstacles like gaps or rocky sections. Almost every type of mountain bike is suitable for the circuit, but it’s important for the biker to be fit enough and to have good technical skills.
XCO is the only mountain bike Olympic modality, come along and try it!
