This year the popular mountain bike competition will be held in Puerto Plata, October 3-4, 2015. Athletes from 12 countries have confirmed their participation in this UCI Class 1 competition.
Last year the “Classic of Champions” was the only event of its kind, under the category UCI Class 2, held in the entire Caribbean. This year, the event classification was upgraded to UCI Class 1. This new category has attracted top cyclers from all over the world.
Similar events have been held in the Dominican mountain-region town of Constanza, but the permanent growth of the competition forced organizers to move it to a venue with better lodging facilities.
Rosalba Valerio, Bicicentro’s marketing manager, which sponsors the competition, said this year they had to look for a venue that would be able to lodge the large number of participants and sports enthusiasts.
