In this race, the categories that normally hold the fastest (and most famous) riders are the closest to 

the 30/35 one. They usually has ex-icons from the Pros events of DHI that decided to have a very 

active "retirement". Here are some highlights : 

Martin “Cepi” Raffo and Gonzalo Rodriguez

as they were in the start list of 2005 and 2006's World Cups that the city held. Nowadays they 

maintain a MTB School called GRAVITY, and together they hold the title of the Open Shimano, 

one of the most remarkable series of South America.
