Gutiérrez took to Zipaquirá, a town near to the capital Bogotá, to drive the trails round the hills here and discovered a range that took him into one of many below-ground sodium mines for which the location is famous.

The cathedral. which can be understood locally as La Catedral de Sal, is a majestic little bit of structure and it is certainly one of Columbia’s many recognisable places of interest. It's significant cultural and religious significance in the psyche associated with South United states nation's largely catholic populace.
It was no simple ride for Marcelo. Low air, liquid leakages, high staircases, a variety of ramps and rocky wall-rides paired with minimal reaction times in nearly absolute darkness suggested difficult cycling problems throughout for the current world number six downhill mountain biker.
