A word of caution, anytime you plan to climb a berm or a hill, make sure its well packed in before you charge hard at it. Check out the rookie move below:
Any hill climb presents its own unique challenges. Trying to make it up a muddy hill climb is asking for trouble. This guy charged hard, but in the end the the hill prevailed.
Slow and steady wins the race. This guy is the picture of finesse as he navigates his rock crawler way through this obstacle in this epic Flex Friday video.
Apparently this guy doesn’t care much for sedans. He’s rolling coal and doing burnouts on the hood of this helpless little car. This video has ‘Merica written all over it.
Robby Gordon knows his way around the desert in a trophy truck. It’s also safe to say he knows how to react in order to save an off-road crash, and here he demonstrates that ability like the veteran he is.
This guy’s run started out by putting his RZR on its lid, and then just before it tumbled down the hill he managed to get it back on four wheels and drive away. We’re not sure if we’d classify that as a RZR fail or not but it certainly could have been ugly.
Anyone who’s ever raced in Baja will tell you that you battle the race course as much as the other racers. Wayne Matlock is a multi-time champion ATV racer who recently switched to piloting UTVs, and at this year’s SCORE Baja 1000 Matlock gave a perfect example of maintaining the will to win in Baja. After losing his right front tire while leading the race, Matlock and his co-driver managed to limp the machine to the finish with only three wheels and earn a second place in class and fourth place overall.
It’s obvious from this video that the ground is pretty wet, so it’s no surprise that this Jeep Wrangler lost traction while climbing up this hill. Where the driver messed up is turning the steering wheel while sliding backwards. File this one under “what not to do.”
Just beyond the shimmering glow of the world famous Las Vegas Strip is the most hostile and unforgiving territory in North America, the Mojave Desert. An apocalyptic region made of jagged stone, gravel pits, deep silt beds, piercing cactus and temperatures in excess of 120 degrees.
The dust has hardly settled from King of the Hammers 2017 and this years event certainly didn’t disappoint. There are lots of race reports and recaps floating around, but this is a really well done video on the Ultra4 portion of the event.
