okay, not of the mountain bike sort, but i figure some of ya would dig this, and chances are most of ya never even heard of this,, so it would be worth sharing.
tomorrow is the running of the unlimited class at the 2012 King of The Hammers. its an offroad truck/jeep race that kind of combines rock crawling and desert racing. the course is 168 miles through Johnson Valley in California, its a timed race where they have to do two laps around the course, with desert road sections linking between technical rock crawling sections.
its evolved to include multiple classes, but this is a pretty good indication of what the ulimited class vehicles that are racing tomorrow are like. http://youtu.be/5pB52cmDM1M
