SOUTH VALLEY - Radar
Bill and Nic were the first to ever lay tracks on this crazy long, never ending enduro style trail in the South Valley of Cusco. Ok to be exact and fair.....to ever lay tracks on the bottom section of Radar, which we found by climbing to it for 2 1/2 hours!!!! Located in the South Valley and the original riding grounds of Bill and Nicole Koch this ride carries you over a ridge and finally drops you into the river valley ending in Andahuaylillas.
