Last night, on OLN, they had a show about this group of people who biked the Inca trail in Peru. Did anyone else see this? This trail was amazing! One of the riders was a German guy named Hans (I think). This dude was frickin' amazing. It looks like he was a trials rider in a previous life. Seeing what these guys could do on a bike was awe inspiring. At one point, they were going down steep rocky single track on the side of a cliff. The path was, maybe 18" wide of bread-loaf sized rocks, and a total stair case. If you were to go off the side, it was almost pure vertical. These guys were NUTS. And they would ride for as much as 10 hours a day! At other times, they were going through jungle trails that were about 18" deep, and not really wide enough for the pedals to fit. This was, by faaaarr, the most epic mountain bike ride I've ever seen. Some of the stuff they rode, I don't know if I'd be able to walk it.
