Fallen Cyclist Was Not Inscribed In The Ruta de Los Conquistadores

The Ruta de Los Conquistadores organization cleared up Thursday afternoon that the deceased cyclist in the town of Salitrillos de Puriscal was not among those registered in the competition.

The death of the man while riding his bicycle occurred in one of the areas where he passed the first stage of the competition, which had its start in Jacó and finished in Ciudad Colón.

The first stage of the Ruta is a long and steep climb from the Pacific to Salitrillos de Puriscal. See complete route here.

Through a press release, the organization explained that the staff of the Red Cross paramedics assigned to the competition attended the cyclist, however, “after carrying out resuscitation maneuvers he was declared deceased in the place. We clarify that this event was not through a traffic accident, and will be up to the relevant authorities who refer to the case,” they reported.
