    no, nunca hemos estado en la Titan Desert. Pero este año van a correr dos amigos míos y uno de ellos es favorito para la victoria final. Recuerda este nombre: Angel Gómez "Litu" (ex-profesional del ciclismo de carretera)

    por cierto, si te gustan las carreras maratón yo organizo esta carrera el 19 de mayo en Cabezón de la Sal (Cantabria, norte de España). 165 kms y 4200 m desnivel positivo. El año pasado hubo 4000 participantes:
    Los 10.000 del Soplao
    El último ganador ha sido Angel Gómez "Litu"

    no, we have never been in Titan Desert but this year two of my friends will ride and one of them is favourite to the final victory. Remember this name: Angel Gómez "Litu" (road cycling ex-profesional)

    by the way, if you like marathon races i organice this race on may 19th in Cabezón de la Sal, (Cantabria, northern Spain). 165 kms long and 4200 meters ascension. Last edition there were 4000 riders participating.
    Los 10.000 del Soplao
    Last winner was Angel Gómez "Litu".

    un saludo

    Yes, I've rode "La Legión 101 kms" (101KM-24H) and I would like to ride that race again. Serranía de Ronda area is great place to ride. My brother is living in Benalmádena now and he also loves MTB so it's easy for me to go there (I only have to drive 1000 kms )
