The next episode of Seasons of Shred follows the crew down to Peru where they meet up with long-time friend Garett Buehler to explore the terrain while learning about the country's unique culture. From the Inca Avalanche race to freeride spots descending from over 15,000ft of elevation, Peru has a lot to offer and shows amazing potential for the sport of mountain biking.
As we descended around a corner on the road from Cusco to Machu Picchu this was our first glimpse of the Sacred Valley. Amazing view!
It's pretty unreal the effect foreigners with cameras can have on the local youth. These kids were excited to see us to say the least.
Making our way to the top view point to overlook one of the seven wonders of the world.
No shenanigans down in Peru.
All of the taxis in the Ollaytatambo and surrounding area were equipped with bike racks like this one. Pretty awesome how big the riding scene is down in Peru.
Finding a full on jump trail on this trip was something no one expected but Garrett took full advantage.
Nothing but berms, jumps and open straight away dropping into the Sacred Valley.
From epic views to berms and step down hips we found gold along the way.
From high mountain steep decents to flowy red dirt tails Perus got you covered for great riding.
Next stop...The floor of the sacred valley.
This section of trail was so fast, with so many doubles, yet you where cutting side hill with some decent exposure to the right at times, the kind of trail that keeps the thrill alive, and you could ride all day.
The trails were much more than just walking paths.
The mountain ranges in Peru really are larger than life!
One of the many amazing sunsets along the journey.
Life is good!
The days were filled with exploring from sun up to sun down.
AT making one last lap before the sky's closed and the trip came to an end.
