The triple corona or triple crown is one of the most technical routes that we can do with a MTB in the north of Gran Canaria. It runs through three descents in which Canarian championships have been held and even a Spanish enduro and downhill championship. Below, we give you all the data and information you need so that you can do the route on your own.
About the Triple Crown enduro
The route runs between the towns of Firgas, Arucas and Teror. Although we will pass through these towns “laterally”, if we need to stop to buy water or food, we will only have to deviate a few meters. Apart from these towns, we will pass through the La Goleta dam, La Machacadora and several trails in Firgas. Below you can check all the technical details.
|Total ascent/descent||1.057 m|
|Estimated time||2/3 hours|
|Minimum water||1 l|
|Shops during the route||Yes|
|Recommended bike||Enduro/All Mountain|
Through which downhills does the track pass?
We will go through the downhill of El Picacho, known for its hardness, its large stones stuck together and for being one of the hardest downhills in Europe in terms of bicycle and suspension breakage (said by Öhlins technicians). We will also do the famous Pinito downhill, known for its red land and its steep incline. And finally we will go down the descent of the Firgas mountain, which ends in a small pumptrack and a field of jumps.
