Enjoy this short film featuring Osprey athlete Lorraine Blancher as she explores the mountain bike trails on the border of Argentina and Chile.
From the start, this adventure through the Atacama presented more challenges than most people would deal with. But, with the hope of other-world trails off in the distance this crew pushed through setback after setback in search of the ultimate riding adventure. And as the crew reveals, Chile isn’t for the faint of heart, but its stunning beauty is well worth the sweat and tears.
“Every new trail you travel on or off the beaten path brings uncertainty. Riding bikes in a place like this forces you to pay attention to the terrain, listen closely to suggestions on how to move through it. Instead of success and failure you became to think in terms of adaptation and forward motion.”
