Costa Rica Color: La Ruta Slideshow

The 17th edition of La Ruta de los Conquistadores rolled away from Costa Rica’s Pacific shore on Nov. 11 and will finish Saturday on the country’s Caribbean coast some 390 kilometers later.

If you can’t race La Ruta— or as mere mortals do, just manage to ride it — then the next best thing is to check out the action in living color here at Singltrack.com.

California-based Costa Rican racer Manuel Prado, Team ShoAir, leads the overall classification going into Saturday’s final stage.
