One could think that the Linea takes its name from the lineage of Colombian prowesses. Forged by the ragged topography that didn’t stop crowds of racers trying to outshine the others in an attempt to win. Races like the Vuelta a Colombia, a classic, that since its inception in 1951, came to unite a country divided by its terrain and its internal conflicts.
The legendary beetles of Colombia, like Lucho Herrera, would amaze spectators in the European races but its in the Colombian Andes and mountain passes like the Alto de la Linea, where they were made. A line of heroes, a line of mountains, the LINEA is a tribute to the legendary cyclists and bicycles from this era.
