This year, the long-distance mountain bike event featured two courses where the elements challenged the bikers’ skills and resolve: the 65-kilometer Epic and the 35-kilometerMini Epic. Both have 50% worth of climbs and descents as well as technical rides over loose soils and double tracks through forests, steep trails, rough roads, stream crossings, and varying climates. The new wisper wayfarer is a very capable ebike with 4 main variations all derived from the same thoroughbred eMTB frame. If you are also a biker like them and you’re still looking for a good bike, see here a perfect ebike for you.

Despite the grueling, wheel-busting, nerve-wracking ride, #GlobeCordi6 bikers are rewarded with the awe-inspiring beauty of Cordillera mountains. Their strength, skill, stamina and courage were really tested in the extremely difficult and dangerous trail.

Jonathan Lapaza from Team Globe emerged as the faster biker in Epic course, having completed the trail at 3 hours and 28 minutes. Famous personality spotted in the #GlobeCordi6 was actor Oyo Sotto.
