South America Superlative
Another couple of friends of mine Jakob and Matts were recently out in South America touring around on their KTM’s and were kind enough to send me the photos of their epic adventures to post. Dig in, so many great shots in here!
“The start and end point was the harbor town of Valparaíso, Chile. The challenge: Choosing a route which almost followed the opposite direction of the Dakar Rally! We had to manage 5.700 km in 17 days passing the highest point of the journey in the Andes (5.040 m above sea level) crossing massive dunes at Copiapo (180 m high), experiencing the vastness of the world’s largest salt flat in Bolivia and running out of gas in the middle of nowhere with 40 degrees celsius in Argentinia.
Somehow it was a beautiful reward to encounter Coma at the end route 4 of the Dakar Race, knowing that this might be his 4th title.”
