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. It’s traditionally been one of the toughest races to follow, too. But a crowd-funded YouTube privateer is helping change that.
We are producing two short videos for this year’s DGR. One silly, and one serious. This is the silly one.
Four winners, three continents, $1800 in prizes. We’ve finally tracked down all the lucky prizewinners in our first-ever Great Big Gear Giveaway. We featured the contest on BikeEXIF and got so many entries we felt obliged to sweeten the pot with an extra tool roll. The winners hail from Australia, Ireland, Wisconsin and Strong Island, NY. Here are their stories.
