Red Bull-sponsored teams have claimed victory in the truck and bike categories during this year’s Dakar Rally.

Cyril Despres battled his way through the early stages of the 2013 event, in which buggy, bike, quad and lorry drivers took on 8,500 kilometres of harsh terrain in South America, and managed to claim his fifth Dakar victory.

Riding a KTM, the Frenchman gained his second consecutive win in the rally, despite suffering a penalty after he was forced to change engines mid-way through the race.

“Of course every win at the Dakar is special but this one stands out for me because it is the first time I have been able to defend my title. Winning the Dakar two years in a row is rare and nobody has done it since Fabrizio Meoni ten years ago,” he said of the win.

As a little kick-off to the start of the short-course off-road racing season beginning this weekend in Arizona for the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series, check out this pairing of All Star pitcher Tim Lincecum as he gets behind the wheel of Bryce Menzies’ trophy truck.

While in Phoenix for spring training, baseball world champion and All Star pitcher Tim Lincecum took the opportunity to meet up with 2011 TORC Series PRO 2 class champion, SCORE Trophy Truck champion and Dirt Sports Driver of the Year, Bryce Menzies, at Firebird Raceway.

While out practicing for the upcoming short-course off-road season, Menzies and Lincecum were able to meet up just prior to the start of the short-course season and baseball season. After suiting up, Lincecum went for a wild ride in Menzies’ 800-horsepower #1 Menzies/Red Bull Trophy Truck. After the tutorial with Menzies, Lincecum climbed into the driver’s seat, where he proved that throwing a baseball isn’t his only talent.

MEDINA, MN (Jan. 9, 2012) – Polaris Terrain Domination is not restricted to the snowbelt, as snocross racer and snowmobile freestyle champion Levi LaVallee proved on New Year’s Eve when he soared 412 feet, 6 inches, on a Polaris IQ® Race Sled to set a new world record for snowmobile distance jumping.

LaVallee soared to the record during a Red Bull-sponsored event staged at Embarcadero Marine Park in San Diego. LaVallee flew across the park’s salt water channel alongside motocross rider Robbie Maddison, who flew 378’, 9”.

LaVallee’s jump was actually the longest in the history of all motorsports categories as it beat the current motorcycle jump distance mark of 390’, 4”, set in 2008 by Ryan Capes. LaVallee’s previous snowmobile jump record of 361’ was already far beyond the record jump distances for ATVs (176’, 11”) and cars (332’).

After successfully landing the epic jump on the race-tuned Polaris sled, LaVallee was understandably ecstatic. He hadn’t just covered 412 feet, he had completed a year-long journey of recovery from injuries suffered in a practice crash in December 2010.

The Red Bull Romaniacs 2010 race concluded last month with Chris Birch taking the win. The rally, which has been running since 2004 and spans over five days, is considered to be one of the toughest off-road dirt bike races in the world. Less than half of the 165 competitors finished the race that traveled through the Romanian Karpates. In the Pro-Class, only 10 riders from 7 nations out of 21 crossed the finish line at the medieval centre of Sibiu.

The event organizer Martin Freinademetz put together a difficult course than ran through the Romanian forests, and heavy rain all made the event even more difficult. Red Bull posted a cool interview and riding video with event winner Chris Birch, who talks about how he got his start riding motorcycles and then takes a ride through some winding private forest trails West Auckland, New Zealand. It takes a few second to load, but it’s worth it. Check it out.
