Rob Warner travelled the globe racing the Mountain Bike World Cup, but like any of us that have chased events around this big ol world, you never get to experience the local cultures and people, just the echo chamber of focussed riders intent on that elusive podium.

That’s all changed with Robs new web series, Wild Rides. In the latest episode, Rob and Finn Iles head to South America and the mountains of Ecuador. At 4,000 m altitude and with a vast network of mountains and volcanoes, Ecuador is home to magnificent landscapes and some authentic gnarly mountain bike trails, but will the pair be able to survive the hurt locker of high altitude?
