    Friday was Practice day for the Pros and Challenge day for the non-pro entrants.

    The "Challenge" consisted of three stages, 2 off road and a third which started on top of one of the walls of Ainsa Castle and rode through the streets and down the many steps of Ainsa Old Town.

    This section was also the Prologue stage for the Pros. . . .

    The Challenge was tough and the day was hot. The atmosphere was amazing!

    We started off the morning watching in the town of Boltana, which is a few km's from where we live.

    Bikes everywhere and riders making last minute adjustments to their bikes . . . .

    (Zona Zero Route 3 Light crosses this bridge in the opposite direction to these riders. I ride it a few times a week and I've never seen it like this!)

    This was the bottom of one of the descents on Stage 1 of the Challenge.

    About half way through the stage, a tricky switchback descent.

    (This is actually part of Zona Zero Route 10)

    Stage 2 of the Challenge includes this drop. I caught some nice vids of riders coming down here which I'll post later.

    (This is part of Zona Zero Route 5)
