2017 Dakar Best Of Bikes - VIDEO

A look back at last year’s Dakar Rally

You could say the Dakar Rally, and rally racing in general, is seeing a resurgence in popularity in the USA. And that is primarily because of our very own desert racer extraordinaire, Ricky Brabec. He has been on the World Rally scene for a couple of years now and has racked up some impressive results including a stage win and an overall third place in the Morocco Rally.

Also causing some buzz is former supercross star Andrew Short, who has joined the Rockstar Energy Factory Husqvarna Rally team and, with just one international rally race under his belt, is jumping headlong into the mother of all rallies, the Dakar, for 2018.

Since it is the 40th edition of one of the most famous races on the planet, the Dakar Rally will be releasing highlight videos from all different eras of Dakar racing. This one is the "Best Of Bikes" from last year's race. Enjoy.
