SPANISH 5-DAYS 2nd-6th of JULY 2016

This will, without no doupt, be the best competition in Europe this summer. Imagine this forgotten paradise on earth, vast pine forests in the most densely forested and less populated area in southern Europe. Perfect summer temperatures due to the situation at about 1000-1200 meters above sea level. Even if we have maps of very good international standards and varied, and technically very challenging terrains, the place is practically unknown outside the borders of Spain.
