MUST Watch: Ride of the Dead – Enduro Racing on 1,000 Year Old Trails

The Trans Sierra Norte is a multi-day enduro mountain bike race that rips through the Oaxacan highlands offering more than 30,000 feet of elevation gain/loss. The trails are thousands of years old and were predominantly used to connect local villages and exchange goods, further making the bike event a cultural rarity. As the perfect climax, the race finishes in Oaxaca City right about the time the fireworks are blasting off for the Day of the Dead fiesta (Dia de los Muertos).
