Introducing Specialized Alias
Specialized launched a new women's specific beginner triathlon bike in Kona during the 2013 GoPro Ironman World Championships, and this new bike is called Alias. It will be available in 5 sizes ranging from 44cm to 57cm and is offered in a Pro, Comp and Sport line. The Sport edition retails for $2,600 and the Pro version featured below will top out at $6,000. So it is really not so much about an entry level bike from a cost perspective, but for someone who is interested in the sport but might not want a full on triathlon bike. The bike features a zero offset seatpost and seat tube angles range from 77-78 degrees.


How To Be A Mountain Biker

LA RUTA's legendary Day 1 starts at 6:00 AM and gives competitors until 5:30 PM — 11.5 hours—to complete the route before being disqualified. It won't be easy. From sea level, riders climb numerous hills that hit riders with a total elevation gain of approximately 12,000+ feet. That's why Day 1 is known by competitors as the "make it or break it day".

Expect all kinds of riding conditions this day: mud, gravel, asphalt, and loose rocks. Temperatures will be very high in the lowlands, as high as 105 degrees F and cooler in the mountains.

Stage starts at 6:00 am
Finish line closes up at 05:30 pm

The Toughest Race in the World

LA RUTA DE LOS CONQUISTADORES is Costa Rica’s premier mountain bike race and one of the most difficult athletic events on the planet. The world’s original multi-day fat-tire stage race, La Ruta is the “Grandfather” that created and inspired this now-worldwide genre — and still the most loved, feared, and respected.

LA RUTA DE LOS CONQUISTADORES is considered one of the ten toughest endurance events on the planet.

Every year, hundreds of the very best mountain bikers and endurance racers from around the world come to Central America to test themselves in this unique odyssey of distance, geography, climate and culture.

La Ruta, the only bike race that traverses the American land mass from coast to coast — from Pacific to Atlantic —is no easy day at the beach. Between its sea-level start and finish, the 240-mile route crosses 5 mountain ranges that force you climb a cumulative 39,000 feet!



Starting point: Tres Ríos, Cartago.
Finish point: Turrialba, Cartago.
Distance: 80 km (aprox)
Elevation Gain: About 8000+ feet / 2500+ mts (aprox)
Altitude change: 1291m to 3025m to 607m
Climate: 5°C-8°C expect wind and rain. Be prepared for drastic climatic changes this day, is very cold and hypothermia might be a problem.
Terrain: Pavement 20%, volcano, rocks, and ash 20%, very steep uphills 30%, and very technical downhill 30%.
Day 2 also starts at the crack of dawn and you have until 5pm to finish. The 80 km features a fearsome climb of about 6,000 feet from Tres Ríos straight up the Irazú Volcano, with the high probability of bitterly cold weather much of the day. Starting at 1291 meters above sea level, the ride is a never-ending ascent until you reach 3025m (about 10,000 feet). Then it levels off, passes the Turrialba Volcano, and starts one of the fastest and longest downhills in Costa Rica, finishing in the town of Turrialba at an elevation of 607m (about 2,000) feet. On this day, it is very important to have well-functioning brakes and be prepared for cold weather riding. At 10,000 feet with wind and rain, hypothermia is a risk, as it can get near freezing.

Stage starts at 6:00 am
Finish Line closes up at 05:45 pm
