Licor Beirão Avalanche 2019

Lousã
The race is 13 kilometres long and will involve Downhill, Endurance and XC athletes.

The Licor Beirão Avalanche has returned to Lousã, from the 1 to 3 November, covering about 13 kilometres of roads and singletracks, between Trevim, at an altitude of 1,200 metres, and the town centre of Lousã.

This is one of the most important mountain bike races and one of the largest collective descents on the Iberian Peninsula, involving events such as Downhill, Endurance and XC. Avalanche Licor Beirão is part of  the Cyclin' Portugal project, which awards the Aldeias do Xisto the status of being a primary destination of excellence in the country to host cycling, since it combines quality infrastructure, competitive and leisure events and tourist programmes and services.
