Monte finished in 172 place out of over 350 riders in Stage 2 of La Ruta de los Conquistadores mountain bike race in Consta Rica last night. The final Stage, which finishes on the Gulf coast side of the country, started this morning.
Monte’s wife Jill has spoken to him several times and said that he is having a great time and that the country, jungle and rainforrests are amazing.
Jill emailed: “I spoke with Monte earlier this afternoon and he had a fun, “HARD” day. He went straight up a mountain for 6 hours!!! He’s in the mountains for the night. He’s having such an awesome time and a wonderful experience…He said he feels great and is doing well!”
