History and symbols of Peru

Heartland of the Inca Empire, Cuzco region is full of mind blowing gravel roads, built at the height of the empire. These numerous ramifications that cross the region are part of the “Qhapaq ñan” (royal road in Quechua), the ancient road network of the Incas which was traveled on foot by uncommon humans: the Chaskis. These exceptional athletes were able to communicate messages within the Inca Empire at unprecedented speeds and metabolic power alone.

Nowadays, Peru hides one of the most spectacular gravel cycling playground with superb passes and breathtaking landscapes. Highlight of the 2020 edition: the Ausangate and Salcantay, the highest peaks in the region which hide spectacular landscapes but also one of the most demanding bikepacking experience! Finish the race and explore then Macchu Picchu from the race village located in Urubamba village!
