*57 national and international pilots competed during five stages.

Patrick Reyes, race director of the Coast 2 Coast Cross Country Rally, described as a complete success the competition that during five stages gathered 57 national and international pilots, who traveled more than 1,600 kilometers through the states of Veracruz, Puebla and Oaxaca.

The rider also thanked the support of the authorities of the three states for the great event, which was attended by riders from the United States, Canada, Colombia, Spain and South Africa.

"We are very happy with how everything went, the feedback from the participants was very good, all the foreigners said that the race was epic. In the three states we had streets closed, police in cruisers, it was impressive all the support," said Reyes Morrison.

"It was a year of reactivation of our competition, since we haven't done it for four years. All the pilots praised the beauty of the route in which they enjoyed its geographic and climatic diversity. We had more than 500 thousand views of our videos on social networks. For us, this fifth edition was a success," said the executive.

Despite the success achieved, "Pato" Reyes pointed out that for next year's meeting, issues such as timing must be improved and that more internationally renowned riders will be invited.

"The most probable thing is that we will change some stages for next year, there are several municipalities that are already asking us to pass due to the spectacularity of the motorized units and the economic benefit that will be left in their communities", Patrick said,

"Unfortunately we had the death during the third stage of the competition of the motorcyclist from Tabasco, Jesús León. We recognize the work of our medical service that arrived in 10 minutes to the scene of the accident, when the standard in international competitions is 15 minutes. The consensus of 10 riders of his team was to finish the course in honor of him. These are situations that unfortunately can happen in this type of extreme competitions," said the race director.

Finally, the organizers thanked the commercial partners that have believed in the event such as Quaker State, RedBull, JEEP, GARMIN, BMW Motorrad and VRIMconnect and acknowledged that the support of the states of Veracruz, Puebla and Oaxaca, communities and towns through which the Coast 2 Coast rally passed, was fundamental to make this edition epic and unforgettable for all the competitors.
