When Jordi Cantal began to travel the PIRINEXUS route of 340 km in summer 2014, he did not know that at the end, deep in the night, he would have created a new challenge thas has already become a legend. In the sixth edition, start and finish will be in Girona within the Sea Otter Europe festival.
The PIRINEXUS CHALLENGE is currently a personal non-stop challenge of 340km. Participants will have until midnight to complete a route that takes in all types of terrain. All bikes are allowed, although probably the most appropriate is the gravel or the cyclocross bikes. Road bikes with 28 (or 25) tyres and mountain bikes 29’ wheels with slicks.
Participants will leave the sea and head inland into the regions of Girona following the course of the Ter river up to the Colomer dam. Once there, the course will turn left towards Les Gavarres mountains. It will then mainly run along the crest of the mountain in an easterly direction, enjoying views of the El Gironès and L’Empordà regions whilst surrounded by cork oaks. All the tracks are in very good condition and have low technical difficulty.
