    Good job! Chris Van Dine in Peru

    It is always a pleasure for us to ride with professional mountain bikers like Chris Van Dine. In the last years we rode with Robbie Bourdon, Richie Shley, Matt Hunter, Hans Rey and many other good riders from all the globe. This time we sent an invitation to CVD to participate on a mass start downhill in Cusco and then ride the most exiting trails around Cusco, Sacred Valley and the Colca Canyon. Did you know that a recent measure of the deepness of the Colca Canyon was around 4,100 meters deep? Yes, it is the deepest canyon on earth!

    This time, CVD did not had the same fortune as last year when he won the Megavalanche race in Cusco. Now, he had a crash just at the start of the race and many other riders were involved in the accident including me.

    Well, here are the pictures that say more than 1,000 words!

    Just for the picture!

    Awesome descent!

    Awesome - I was in Peru last year and thought it looked sick for riding. Next time I'm bringing a bike for sure.
