Description

The origin of the race dates back to 1994, when for the first time, a group of enthusiastic cyclists toured recognition by the slopes of the Sierra de Juarez in search of new challenges for mountain biking. Back then there was the myth of the appearance of a strange creature that killed animals in rancherĂ­as sucking blood.

In one of his journeys, dawn at 6:00 am on the mountain antennas franklin and in the wilderness, Lic. Jaime Flores and Ing. Julio Salazar two participants of this tour, jokingly said walking in the bowels of the mountain they were at the expense of the Chupacabras.

From that moment, the route was officially christened with that name: CHUPACABRAS.

Soon they were given the task of opening gaps, draw tracks, knock down fences and ranches cross paths with routes to achieve up to 12 hours until 1997, CHUPACABRAS 100 Km. Officially started as an organized and registered as a civil association bike racing.
