Most people think of La Ruta’s drivetrain-destroying orange clay when hearing of Costa Rica. Perhaps they still should. But Jeff Kendall-Weed smiles his way through slop, manuals mountainous singletrack and politely interrupts some kind locals. All in Costa Rica. He drives north to fly south, finds berms, overcomes injury, listens to locals’ stories and wheelies his way through historic lands combining trade routes with a burgeoning enduro scene. Sound like Jeff’s got it figured out? Certainly.
