Vuelta a Guatemala



Or "Tour de Guatemala."

This is the pre-eminent cycling event of Guatemala and early yesterday morning we got to listen, thanks to a van with huge speakers a block away, to stage four being announced all morning. Once people started gathering on the highway, we decided to see what all the fuss was about.



Of course, the two remaining presidential candidates, Colom and PĂ©rez Molina, had to join the fray too.

Here's what Wikipedia says about the 13 stage race through most of the country and the Official Site.
