THE ROUTE

15apr

CASTELLON – MORELLA

139km , 4.100m. +EG. We begin the event with the longest stage of the 3 days. It takes us on a route that is mostly new compared to last years’s, but with built on the same principles of adventure and just as demanding as last year’s. Even though the stage is of a similar length and elevation gain as last year’s, this new route allows for faster pedaling zones. Without a doubt, a great starter to begin the event with!

16apr

MORELLA – MORELLA

68km , 2.100m. +EG. We are going to see the same scenery twice in the second stage, with both start and finish at Morella, but this stage is somewhat more demanding. As had to be the case, the paths and single-tracks of Morella are going to take center stage today, impressive as they are because of the spectacular surroundings they are in, with fun parts in beautiful scenery and demanding climbs in this amazing part of the Els Ports area.

17apr

MORELLA – BENICASSIM

119km ,2.400m. +EG . The touristy municipality of Benicàssim will host again the end of the MedXtrem after a long but fast route during which we shall unite the interior with the coast, the mountains and the sea. A stage full of contrasts to act as the icing on the cake after 3 days of authentic mountain biking. A stage that is hiding a few small surprises…Save some strength for the end…!
