Video: On The Inca Trail With Buehler, Leitner and AT - Part 2

May 11, 2014
by Seasons of Shred  
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

Passing some youth on the way to Machu Picchu. These kids were excited about life to say the least.

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.

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.

From high mountain steep decents to flowy red dirt tails Perus got you covered for great riding.

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.

Niki putting the berm to use.

The trails were much more than just walking paths.


The mountain ranges in Peru really are larger than life

 It's awesome to see the same scenery "Inca Avalanche" "Santisimo Downhill" where i've ride for years, it just give me desire to return to Peru and enjoy the wonderful terrain, you guys "everyone is in Peru" you should go to other trails like "Chincheros" well in fact in Chincheros are 3 Trails but all of them are just awesome, the one with the stone bleachers is the best for me, is extreme, insane!, there are a lot more of trails that have an awesome potential for riding your bikes.
