Riders Throwdown

It is well known by all that the Canary Islands has one of the most privileged climates of the entire globe, therefore, for its beaches and the magical corners that each of its islands hides, it is one of the main tourist destinations in Europe. What not everyone knows is that in the same way the archipelago has an idyllic setting for sports.

World, European and Spanish Championships of different disciplines are disputed between the different islands, as well as hundreds of elite athletes decide to carry out their pre-season preparation on our islands, because of the almost permanent 21 degrees of average temperature, making the Canary Islands a paradise for sportsmen. Training 365 days a year without hardly any adverse weather conditions is hard to find.

So because of its climate, its landscapes, its magic and because the CrossFit community is in full growth, the European Caribbean, as many people call it, is a perfect place to test the best athletes of the continent.

The next 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th & 17th of November 2019 in the municipality of Mogan, the Riders Throwdown 2019 will take place. The great success of the previous years allows us to think big, so this year there will be big changes.

To be able to reach this final event the fittest boys and girls of Europe will have to participate in a qualifying period of 3 weeks (between May 5th and 26th). The winners of the online qualifiers will be awarded with 1000 € for the male winner of the qualifier (all the categories – one winner) and another 1000 € for the winner of the female online qualifier (all the categories – one winner).

In addition Riders Throwdown 2019 will have a new categories, teams of 4 (MMFF) and will continue with the categories of MASTERS (35-39 / 40-44 / 45-49 / 50-55 / 60+) that so much success has had in previous editions.
