Galicia – 7-14 May 2017
“I have raced at the Raid Gallaecia twice and its a fantastic area to race in and Pablo, the race director puts on a brilliant course and it is very well organised. Galicia is a beautiful region of north western Spain and has an incredible rugged coastline which the race takes full advantage of. The race staff and marshals have always been super friendly and i would really recommend the race to anyone just make sure you spend an extra few days enjoying the local area and the amazing seafood.”
“Adventure racing in Galicia is always special for me. It is one of the places where I have learnt most of the raids. I love join its small villages by bike using the network of roads and tracks, skirting cliffs or cross its forests between granite blocks and little streams by magical places, or paddle in one of the wildest coasts of the planet.
This will be the fifth time I will be racing the Raid Gallaecia, raid that I have seen grow parallelly to me and that now accomplish to be an ARWS Qualifier, where I have no doubts that it will surprise, becoming one of the best.
“I’m really looking forward to racing Raid Gallaecia as part of the world series. When competing in Raid Gallecia previously I’ve been impressed with the quality of the course and the organisation. I’m looking forward to what I know will be a challenging but fun event in a great part of Spain.”
