This March 30 we will have for 4th year in a row this incredible race in Peru. We had on the past top racers like Steve Peat, Cedric Gracia, Fabian Barel, Brian Lopes, and much more.

This year we already have the confirmation of 2 top 10 and a lot of racers from South America. In South America we have a good racing level. It's coming the 3 times Pan-Am Champion with the National Team from Ecuador, 20 racers from Chile and others from Colombia, Brasil, Bolivia, Argentina, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Panama, USA, Canada and some countries from Europe.

I think that it's going to be the most challenging race in Peru in all the Mountain Bike history. Even more challenging than the time that Peat won the event because we are having more good level racers.

Besides the level of the riders, the trails are in their best conditions. We are riding a lot in Cusco area and also on the Andes of Lima and we are enjoying like never the trails. We are planning to ride for 10 days prior to the race to enjoy all the trails we have in Lima and Cusco and also get to the race in better conditions and totally acclimatized to the altitude.

We still have some spaces available and we hope you can make this trip of the lifetime.

The following pictures were taken in Marcahuasi Downhill Trail, near Lima.

see you in Peru guys!
You will know a different level of making downhill. The trails are not made for downhill, they were build hundreds and thousands of years ago to walk, that's the difference with other trails around the globe.
Go to a gym! :) You will need a lot of arms, legs and balls!

Wayo, from the videos 'saw a lot of different bikes there. For riding in Cuzco (not just the race), a full DH bike or a FR bike with single crown?
