If you’ve never followed the Dakar Rally you’re certainly not alone. Billed as the toughest off-road motorcycle race in the world, Dakar covers 5,500 miles over incredibly rugged terrain, crossing through three countries over 14 stages of racing.

This Saturday, August 19, organizers Girard Fox and Tim Warner will open the gates to “The Lot” in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, for a refreshingly simple sort of motorcycle show.

We put on a one-day Italian Sporting Bike show in collaboration with Alpinestars and Moto Borgotaro. And now we’ve launched comprehensive (and interactive) show coverage chronicling the event.
