Borealis Yampa La Ruta

I bet you never expected to see a guy on fat bike wearing a leader’s jersey. That’s exactly what happened when Jeff Herrera tackled the 22nd edition of La Ruta De Los Conquistadores on his 22 lb Borealis Yampa. There was actually an entire fat bike class at La Ruta which Jeff won, but he also finished just outside of top 20 overall in 22nd place.

Our friend Thom Parsons was on hand in Costa Rica this year to ride some bikes in flip flops, take in some sun, and also provide coverage for Dirtwire.tv including more installments in his Wicked Pro Bikes video series (you have to say it with a Boston accent). After Jeff’s bike check, Thom says “This is the fat bike (and fat bike rider) who finally made me want a fat bike. ”

Catch the video next…

Jeff was racing for Team CoreCo, which is a non-profit out of Escazu, Costa Rica that promotes healthy living. Want more Wicked Pro Bikes? Check them out on the DirtWire Youtube Channel.

Thanks to Thom for sending that in!

Ya gotta be careful, saying the word “croc” in Costa Rica is like yelling “fire” in a crowded theater. Down there crocs are big green things that come charging out of the water and eat you.
