I just stumbled on this.... thanks for posting that video !
I raced the Sandblast Rally this year and had an unbelievably good time.
I wish we had more races like this in the Southeast USA.(especially for bikes).
I'd love to try a desert race someday, but this is as close as I can get for now.
Abbreviated Rallymoto schedule this year, only two races for the bike guys.
Loaded up and headed to New York tomorrow... wish me luck at the Black River Stages !!
Come check it out if you're close enough, and if you're willing they could always use more volunteers.
