As World Cup commentator Rob Warner continues his globetrotting dream tour of the worlds far flung riding destinations, he is joined by Canadian downhill phenom Finn Iles.

The two head to Ecuador to get real high. 4,000 m high, to be more accurate. At this extreme elevation, just breathing is hard, never mind riding a mountain bike.

But, with a huge network of trails winding around Ecuador’s volcanoes and through wicked forests, there’s no time to rest.

How do Iles and Warner deal with the elevation?

Before heading to Ecuador, Warner was on the African continent with slopestyle wizard Matt Jones. After warming up in Kenya, Warner and Jones head to Lesotho, and the ledge of a 630 foot waterfall. One rides, one drops in on the world’s longest abseil. Who will get to the bottom first?
