Dirt Rider Magazine’s famed Torture Test/24-Hour Test has become extinct–at least for a little while. In light of the current strain on the economy, having companies build us bikes to abuse for a few days doesn’t make much sense and, more importantly, we wouldn’t learn much in 2010 about the ultimate off-road bikes because there are few new players and Last Year’s Winner would probably show up and clean house again. So, instead of all work and no play, we decided to have a ride day (like everyone else) and have some fun. But, that doesn’t mean we didn’t work. Since we’d have every major off-road team on hand we racked up as many Pro Tips as possible for a special future issue. We also shot some very cool bikes. But you don’t have to sit here and read about it. Check out the video Ignition3.tv put together for us to get all the details. Oh, and don’t forget to check back later in the week for some sneak peeks at the Pro Tips you’ll see in Dirt Rider soon.
