Tour de Campeche first Central American qualifier

Campeche will host the inaugural Tour de Campeche this weekend on mainly flat and fast roads in the Western Yucatan tourist Peninsula.

The 130k road race on Saturday will start and finish in the historic city center along the Gulf of Mexico for a fully closed circuit. Some minor hills halfway between kilometer 69 and 124 will be challenging for all riders.

On Sunday, a 21km time trial with a back-and-forth loop along the coastline will crown the strongest riders against the clock. The 11km circuit must be done twice.

As it’s a mainly flat area, the main difficulty for the riders will be the heat and humidity.
