Video: Chasing the Inca: Mountain Bike Adventure in Peru

Darren Berrecloth, Garrett Buehler and Chris Van Dine embarked on a mission to find a lost Incan road in the middle of the Peruvian Andes mountain range.

As the trio pedal up and shred down countless peaks and valleys, long days drive each athlete to the dig deep to pass the unknown terrain, never before ridden by bicycle or any other machine.

The goal: Find and ride a lost ancient Inca road. Encountering sleeting snow, and accompanied by horseback support, the trio were able to discover an ancient inca ruin – the trail possibly Manco Inca used when he fled, after first revolting the Spanish colonial? conquest of the land; yeah, that conquest and subsequent war that eventually destroyed the Incan civilization.
