I wish I was around to see that, looks like it could have been incredible. I was born in 95' so I am piecing all this together as I go.Walker was badass.
Add riverside, and along with Hall and Fricker, they DOMINATED the sport for 10 or 15 years.
Evan's was savvy. Anderson complimented Walkers aggressive driving style.
2 wheel team-ups always brings me back to Roesseler/Hunnicut.
I remember filming near the end of Osbornes Wash in '89 and watching Roesseler in the soft deep whoops on the Kawasaki just leagues above every other racer going by.
Holy crap. He was one bounce or whoop away from bouncing into space!
Oh yeah, Johnny Johnson was one badass privateer
Old man opinion here.
Ah dude, you have no clue.. Those were the glory days of off road racing.I wish I was around to see that, looks like it could have been incredible. I was born in 95' so I am piecing all this together as I go.
One of the most well rounded for sure, Sebastian Loeb although not strictly a “desert racer” has had an amazing as well as diverse career.Thinking about this topic the other day, are we only talking North American off road racing? Because, as much as I hate to say it, Stephan Pererhansel is right near the top. Is it 13 or 14 overall Dakar victories? 6 on motorcycles, and 7 or 8 in cars and still going.
Loeb’s off road career has not been very impressive to me, not a lot of success there. Maybe it’s the style of racing that doesn’t suit him being more about navigation than all out speed. Maybe a Baja style race would better suit him where he knew the course and could open it up. Still I’m not sure he would know how hard or how easy to be on the equipment. If you ask me, Nasser and Toby Price have a leg up on Loeb in the off road world.One of the most well rounded for sure, Sebastian Loeb although not strictly a “desert racer” has had an amazing as well as diverse career.
