Almost there, 5 stages down!
We don’t know what’s stronger: their desire to meet up with the other team or their fatigue. The breathtaking scenery, the good vibes between the participants and a taste for adventure are turning the Trail2Challenge into a unique experience.
Aínsa – Jaca
Right out of the gate the riders encounter a constant 50-km climb, with imposing walls at the end. The weather is changing constantly throughout the day and doesn’t allow for many distractions. There’s a definite chill in the air. All that’s left to reach Jaca is a downhill and then a small climb.
Villanueva de Aezkoa – Ochagavía
The hikers face a long stage with constant ups and downs, a veritable leg buster. As they reach the end with a total elevation gain of nearly 1000 m, the fatigue is undeniable. As on the previous stages, the wind tags along with the hikers for much of the day. Luckily, the weather holds off and they can take in the incredible views.
