One of the most grueling motor races in the world, the Dakar Rally, is set to get underway in less than a week. If you’re not already amped up for the off-road desert race that will take competitors across Argentina, Chile and Bolivia, maybe this video will help.
The first official teaser video to be released by Dakar organizers, it features more than just bikes, but cars, SUVs, quads and trucks as well. Sure they have four wheels, but Dakar is gnarly no matter what vehicle is chosen to tackle it. In total, the 2015 Dakar will cover 5,600 miles, divided into 13 stages. Stage one starts January 4 and covers 520 miles, from Buenos Aires to Villa Carlos Paz.
