Justa Jeskova, Michael Sousa, and Steve Storey set out on a mission to traverse the Ausangate trek high up in the Andes of Peru. The goal? To do it by bike with a few stopovers along the way. Reaching heights of over 17’250' while barely dipping below 15’000’, they spent 8 days in the mountains climbing and descending their way around the mighty Ausangate mountain. With 7 mountain passes and almost 100 km between them and their final destination it was a mountain biking journey nothing short of epic. Join them for a photographic trip through snow storms, sun burns, hail, and altitude sickness as they ride through some of the most beautiful terrain on earth.
