Bio: My name is Xavier, I'm from Cusco - Peru and I'm 29 years old. My father taught me how to ride a bike when i was 5 years old. I used to spend hours riding around my neighborhood. When I was 22 my older brother took me to some trails around Cusco and I fell in love with the mountains, nature and my bike. I then started to do some local races and had good results. Now I work as an official tour guide specialized in mountain bikes tours, a job that has given me the chance to do lots of spectacular rides all over the world. It's a dream job that allows you to share the best trails in Peru and our rich culture.
My 'Sacred Ride': "My sacred ride" My sacred ride is one that is not easy to get to. "Huchuy Qosqo" is a trail that requires a lot of effort. To reach this place, there is a steep climb up to 4300 masl (14107,61 ft ). It then becomes a smooth, fast trail with Inka stairs that takes you to Huchuy Qosqo, an Inka site that has a unique view of the "Sacred Valley of the Inkas." It is also special because the only way to get to it is by hiking or BIKING! That is my sacred ride in my hometown!
