Development of desert racing in Australia
« on: March 10, 2014, 03:42:55 am »
A great video showing Ben Grabham and Toby Price, their rise and fall and return to desert racing, a must watch for any aspiring desert racer.

I must say its given me new perspective on my injury, and new hope.

Rally nut. What could possibly go wrong?

They're insanely fast. Love the sound of those engines.

That narrator is none other than Adam Riemann, who is a sensationally good rider in his own right, and the maker of probably the best bike films out there currently. It's just his understated, dry Aussie drawl. I quite like it... Check out some of his other work (with him riding):
