 Am I the only one that prefers to ride my bike in singletrack between the trees in the forest? Too much desertic for me... All the way, I'm shure that's spectacular

 Beautiful Video. Nice editing. Mark my words. Andes-Pacifico is a Beast! And soon will become the "Dakar" of Enduro-All Mountain Competitions.
Hope to see Lars, Joey and the rest again next year! Cheers!

 This was awesome! Great video, guys.... It only strengthened my resolve to sell everything off and head for the Southern Hemisphere this winter.

Life is an adventure! Thanks for sharing y'all's. Smile

 Do they switch helmets at some point during the race? is that why they carry around the half lid?
  • 3 0
 they use the trail/XC helmets for the accents to breath easier as it's compulsory on all stages to wear a helmet....but then plonk the full face for the decents....... so as to maintain and keep their facial structure intact should things get errr... "emotional" ( some/most races will also make it compulsory for the full face on the race or timed stages...)
