    the most difficult thing bout that drop is the approach....since it`s much steeper than the landing. the landing is about one wheel down of the bottom bracket in this pic:

    Man, that drop looks like it'd be kind of sketchy..

    Looks like some fun places to ride down there. Speaking of riding, I need to get off my ass and go ride, enjoy the last day of break before school starts up again..

    first u should speak spanish. all the americans or foreigners i know living here work for some transnational company, and they do live really good for the standards here, because they actually get a bigger paycheck than they do back home...why? because peru is a third world country, with some history on terrorism etc etc.....but u should know that this country is divided so if u live in the "nice parts" of lima u won t notice u re in a third world country. plus u can get a really nice place to live for almost nothing compared to what an apartment costs in the states. for example: my apartment is 196m*m with ocean view and everything just a few blocks from the marriot to give an idea of the quality of the zone...for 150 000. here are some pics of my view....

    Peruvian's Rule!

    The people are so much fun. You guys are way cool. I have a friend in my area that grew up in Peru. He got me into Downhill five years ago, and now he coaches me.
    Just had to add my 2 cents.

    Hola, mi Choche Huevon!!

    Is that Felipe Rios in the photochop? Nice photos of Pachacamac Prado...excellent riding. I have hit all of the jumps but one...on a CROSS COUNTRY bike! (they were smaller at the time I am a friend of Raul Rios (papapa), Richard Fernandini (Jr. + Sr.), etc., But I live in the states near Jackson Hole, WY. I have heard that Olleros is blown out...I guess I am going to come down soon to scout Tauripampa, and a new one off of the road to Huaraz. I will drop you a line when I know when I am coming down...I may have met you, I am the "Gringo Huevon" that rides with the older Cross coutry guys..(Jose Luis Cassabonne, Carlos Ganoza, Nato, Pablo Bedoya, Tayo Masias, Pinchon, etc, blah blah...the "Chicos Malos", as they fancy themselves).
    I have been looking for a little younger group to ride with. Those guys rip, but they are getting old... If you know Felipe, is he coming on the big Sierra trip this spring (fall!)? Chao, Wendell

    His name is George Fernandez, or better know as Coco. He is a horse shoer up here in California. He has raceded the Pan American games a couple of times and the worlds too.
