A MTB race across a 1000 year old Mexican trail. RIDE OF THE DEAD

This year, the city of Oaxacan welcomes a new kind of celebration.

Deep in the Sierra, riders from around the world will honor the dead during a multi-day mountain bike race.

The Trans Sierra Norte is a multi-day enduro mountain bike race that rips through the Oaxacan highlands offering more than 3,000 feet of elevation gain/loss.

The trails are thousands of years old and were predominately used to connect local villages and exchange goods, further making the bike event a cultural rarity.

Especially since it finishes in Oaxaca City right about the time the fireworks are blasting off for the Day of the Dead fiesta (Dia de los Muertos).
