The official ride video...Make sure to watch in HD
The day started by waking up in a lavish hotel room at the Aranwa Resort in Urubamba, Peru. I had a couple of hours to eat breakfast, gear up, and drive across the valley to another fine hotel to meet up with Imad.
A month prior, I received an email inquiry about running a one day hard enduro tour. I was available for the dates, so I began discussing the options for the tour. What I found out was that Imad, who lives in Dubai, was vacat

Hard enduro has really developed rapidly here in Peru. In fact, it was just a few years ago when the first, what I would call legit race was held. The El Inka Hard Enduro entered the stage with a bang. After Jorge Nieto and Branko Bozovich of Lima, spent some time traveling around the world to participate in some of the hard enduro favorites like Romaniacs, Sea to Sky, Avandarocks, Ukupacha and so on, they decided to take a shot and organize the first hard enduro race in Peru under the umbrella
It has been a few years now since Lance Armstrong appeared on TV and admitted to his, and his teams, use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDS). To say that there was an awareness of PEDS influencing the race results of the Tour de France is an understatement; however, to the extent that past racers and champions have admitted to using PEDS (both regarding the type and amounts) is frightening. In this article, I thought I would provide a recap of the most popular PEDS and how you can get the sa

Have you ever ridden a buddy’s bike and walked away wishing that you didn’t have to get off because everything just clicked as you were riding it? On their bike, you could rail every corner, absorb every bump effortlessly, and feel completely stable at high speeds. Once you got back on your bike it feels slow, riding over rough terrain wears you out, and taking corners is best described as unpredictable. To make matters worse, you and your buddy could have the exact same bike! What could possibl

Whether this mind set is due to “we don’t want to be considered weak and injury prone” or ”if I ignore it, it will go away”, either way, we as humans fight the idea that we are injured and w

When you encounter stress (of any type), humans have a tendency to breathe shallow and only through the top of our lungs which minimizes the oxygen being delivered to our brain and working muscles. Learning how to implement this breathing pattern will yiel
Nobody enjoys becoming injured due to overuse or an unforeseeable impact that happens in less than a second; however, as the old saying goes, as an athlete, if you haven’t already been injured, most likely you will be at some point.

First and foremost, follow your doctor’s and physical therapist rehab

Removing and installing crankcase bearings is an incredibly important part of the build process to get right. Today we’re going to cover the method I’ve found works best along with tips and tricks to make the job go easier.
The majority of crankcase bearings utilize an interference fit which means the bearings feature slightly larger diameters than the corresponding bores they fit in. The typical ways to install them are either to force them into place (think hydraulic or arbor press) or v

Mellenials, Seems like a dirty word these days. Almost always is proceeded by the word “You” and followed up by a negative adjective. Where did we go wrong? Why aren’t these spoiled kids riding motorcycles? Well, I am a Millennial, so I will tell you.
There is an obvious decline in not only the on road motorcycle industry, but the off road as well. There is a very blatant lack of engagement from the “Millennial” generation in the motorcycle community. There have been a number of studies p

Put your hands in the air!
I’ll start with the backstory. I had sold a 2016 Husqvarna TE300 to a local fell named Eduardo. He liked it so much that he wanted to buy my other one that I was selling. He was a bit more of a beginner than I had originally thought, but was set on those particular bikes. He had cash, and was ready to make the deal.
