7 Days of Dakar: Day 7

For the final day of our Dakar series, I decided to put together a collection of 360 degree videos from a variety of perspectives. Even if you don’t have a VR headset, these are pretty fun to look at just on your mobile phone or tablet. I’ve got to be honest, I think that this...

7 Days of Dakar: Day 6

This movie has been floating around for a little while now, but if you’re like me, it’s been on your list to watch but you never got the time. Back in 2016, Red Bull TV filmed a documentary about Sebastien Loeb’s first assault on the Dakar Rally that came out last year. I’ve seen plenty...

However, I’ll be the first to raise my hand and admit...

Along the way, competitors will experience thick mud and sand, searing...

It’s New Year’s Eve, and you know what that means… Time for champagne and new year’s resolutions? Well, yes, but what I was thinking was that it’s only one week until the Dakar! To celebrate, I decided to put together a week’s worth of “Dakar picks” to whet your appetite for this epic event. Each...

No Country for Old Men? Don’t Tell “El Matador”!

On paper, the Dakar Rally should be a young man’s game. Arguably the most grueling motorsport event on the planet, the 40th edition of the Dakar featured 14 stages stretching almost 9,000km. Of those 14 stages, half of them were spent in a maze of confusing and unforgiving desert sand dunes. In addition, 5 stages...
