    Red Bull Hare Scramble (tough)

    Toughest mofo hare scramble i have ever seen, the longer you watch the tougher it gets for the riders.

    Bugger that for a joke. Give me a horse any day.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I watch the series every year and it's definitely a tough test for man and machine. Not sure I really like the way they have presented it now, seems very... USA.
    Great show of sportsmanship this year at Erzeberg with the final four all helping each other then crossing the line together.

    Red Bull Hare Scramble (tough)

    Be a great ride on a ktm300 or yz250 two stroke

    Hill climbs are my fav, -watching it i wondered if a soft compound trials tyre would have been a better choice.....

    There's a video on YouTube that's entirely dedicated to one hillclimb at the Romaniacs event you would probably enjoy, very few make it up!

    Yeah the series is a bit harder to watch now.
    Love romaniacs and the roof of Africa. Some of those dudes are mental.

    That Letty character is the psycho who designs the Romaniacs course, figures if he can do it anyone should be able to do it.

    Edit: disregard, had him confused with the other older dude.
