2016 Zolkan 4 Days -©K.Kortebein-4279

A final celebration on Chile’s Pacific coast at the conclusion of Zolkan 4 Days. “These days weren’t just about racing,” said race organizer Matias Bull. “We wanted to give everybody the chance to exchange experience, to exchange knowledge, to learn, to teach, to make connections. It’s not about us being different, being from different countries; it’s about creating an event for people who want to meet each other, but just haven’t had the opportunity to meet yet. …So, we gave them the opportunity!” Photo: Kirsten Kortebein
