Saudi Arabia’s annual Dakar race has started and as always, the event is packed full of adventure and intrigue—including a not so favorable caught-on-video display of mean sportsmanship between Toyota driver Giniel De Villiers when he hit and almost ran over rider Cesar Zumaran while the latter was stopped with bike issues. That video can…

The island of Socotra is located in the Indian Ocean, just off the coasts of Yemen and Somalia.

Of all the epic desert races, the Baja 1000 is one of the most infamous, drawing competitors from across the globe.

Video of the Week: Baffin

Rock climbing is a completely different pursuit than overland travel, but there are parallels in terms of strategy and approach. For instance, when you approach a climbing route, especially a remote one, your entire expedition needs to be completely self-sufficient.
