They were hauling there in the beginning. Made me nervous just watching it. LOL. I think dirt riding is so much more stressful than street riding. You almost lose it and get totally crossed up on the street a few times a year maybe. Happens every thirty seconds on the dirt.

Even going in a straight line through that stuff at speed takes some skill.

Sand = lean back and get on the gas! Slower you go through sand, the harder it is to go where you want to go.

Its all about skill and i used to outrun bigger bikes on my old yz80 but that was becuase i didnt have any brakes couldnt slow down if i wanted to. Kdogg22 got it right about the sand the technique works for lots of things also. Dirt will wear you out quick to!
