This YouTube clip from Triumph’s official channel is, at first glance, a teaser for a stunt showdown between roadracers Carl Fogerty and Dan Johnson. But is there something else going on here, too?

2018 Dakar: Stage 11

Despite predictions of a navigational nightmare, Stage 11 was quite calm compared to yesterday’s madness at the Dakar rally. To nobody’s surprise, Toby Price (KTM) took the stage win. Price is probably the fastest rider remaining, but so far has shown little of the alien-like combination of navigation and speed that won him the 2016 […]
