In just six-and-a-half weeks, the 10th Annual Sierra al Límite will take place on July 6, 2019. This year’s suffering will last 142 km/88 miles with a total elevation gain of 3800 m/12,467′. Then for those racers who haven’t had enough, Sunday’s event will be a straight-up climb that stretches over 39.6 km/25 miles with a total elevation gain of 2,627 m/8,619′. Cyclists who participate both days this year will have a chance to score the title of “Titanium Climber,” which goes to the racer with the lowest cumulative time over both days. Last year’s the prize bore the name of “Golden Climber” and it went to Gonzalo Roldán Alvarez, who tells us about the event in the interview with his coach, Hicham Mar, founder of the American Sport Training Center of Granada.
