The Across Andes race has just come to a finish and we’re thrilled to announce the team of Andres Tagle and Rodrigo Errazuriz have taken the gold aboard their Major Jakes! This race is no small feat. Over the course of 110 hours, the duo traveled 1,478 kilometers and ascended more than 22,000 METERS. The Andes mountains are no joke. To put that in imperial terms, that’s 918 miles and 73,713 feet of elevation.
The duo lead the race from the 100km mark through the finish line and suffered zero mechanicals or punctures throughout their entire journey! The only slept three hours in four days. Clearly this race is not for the faint of heart! Huge congrats to Andres and Rodrigo for their incredible work!
