Costa Rica Sports – Costa Rican entrepreneur and national exmodel Leonora Jiménez is about to participate in a challenging event, the 26th edition of La Ruta de los Conquistadores.
There she will share the track with American cyclist Lance Armstrong.
The event will go from November 1st to 3rd. It’s one of the toughest mountain biking events in the world. It goes from coast to coast.
She wants to talk to Armstrong after the race to see what he thought of it, if he suffered, and if he fell in love with the country.
The Costa Rican has competed in cycling before. In 2017, she participated in a 100-mile course and took second place in her category. She also got first place in 2018 despite having a sprained ankle.
Cycling taught her it’s ok to fall but you have to get up. She also wants to show others you can do anything.
She has six businesses and 80 employees and still gets up at 4 am to train.
