Slick videos shot on HD GoPros (complete with dubstep soundtracks) are now common place. But back in the late 80s, self shot videos were much thinner on the ground, due to expensive camcorders that were about the same size as a petrol tank and probably just as heavy too.In ... Continue reading
Max Biaggi looks back on his career
"I had the chance to keep going, I had the contract already there just to be signed, but I had decided that was the time, that was the opportunity to retire at the top of the hill. It's like a dream come true"It was strange not seeing Max Biaggi ... Continue reading

I don't know what particular stage this was during the recent Dakar Rally, but I bet it wasn't a popular one for some of these riders.
