With the 2015 Dakar set to begin on January 4, all the teams and riders are in high gear getting themselves and their equipment ready for the grueling event. For British rider, Sam Sunderland, getting ready means practicing his skills. However, short of taking his KTM 450 Rally to the desert, the only other viable option is taking it for a spin around a motocross track. Here, watch Sunderland do just that, ripping around the Jebel Ali MX track and putting in some fast motos. It’s an incredible sight to see, and a testament to Sunderland’s skill that he’s able to get around as quickly as he does.
