2007 was a great year, but something was missing. It just wasn't the same without the adventure that is La Ruta de Los Conquistadores. I missed the rugged jungle terrain, the torrential rains, the intense heat & humdity and hanging out with friends. La Ruta ignited my passion for racing and the first one was definitely a life changing experience; the race brings out the beauty of the human spirit. To this day no other race has giving me such intense adrenaline rushes.
I've done it four times: 2002, 2003, 2004 & 2006 and the plan is to head down to Costa Rica in November for the epic adventure then spend some time afterwards in Panama. My goal is to improve on my best finish to date, 25th overall in 2004.
