Mention adventure racing in Argentina, and it is likely Pablo Ureta’s name will come up.
The Argentinian, swiss-resident Pablo Ureta is an amazing endurance athlete. After making a name for himself in the Ironman series, mountain biking, triathlons and road cycling fields, Pablo entered his first adventure race in 2002.
In the wonderful landspace of Argentina Pablo is now doing his fifth Columbia Cruce de los Andes!
A month ago he was in Switzerland getting ready to start the university and decided to escape a few weeks to Argentina looking for good weather and new adventures. He choose one more time The “Columbia Cruce de los Andes”, a great adventure race in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
“I’m a little bit tired, but I love this race. The place is amazing. I have to say that today we went really fast and it was longer than what I thougt. One of the great things about adventure racing is that you challenge your patience and your personality. But most of all, you go to places you’ve never been before.” …”The Columbia Cruce de los Andes is a three day race and the race is not over, we have a lot to come. The firt day you don’t win nor you don’t loose. Now we have to get rest, drink some mates and get ready for tomorrow” said Pablo.
