If you’ve got some time and would like to see some amazing riding, check out this full-length, GoPro video of Jonny Walker winning the 2014 Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Hare Scramble. Even just the first few minutes make for great viewing. Check out the hair-raising jump at 1:31.
The Erzbergrodeo is a four-day event held in Eisenerz, Austria. It closes with the Hare Scramble, which looks like one tough race.

The 20-minute motorcycle documentary Fifty Years of Kicks, about guys in their 60s and 70s riding dirt bikes is pretty inspiring. It starts with a quote from Oliver Wendell Holmes. “Men do not quit playing because they grow old. They grow old because they stop playing.” Well said. Even better, well done.
Here’s an interesting video showing Fraser Island, a popular off-road site on Australia’s east coast, just north of Brisbane.
The Toyota is towing a Conquerer UEV-490 trailer, which looks quite interesting with it’s fold-out, open-air kitchen. One interesting point about these trailers: they can be ordered to match the track width of the towing vehicle. That way the trailer just follows right in the tow vehicle’s tracks, which makes towing in sand or soft ground a lot easier.
