Fully-fueled, a KTM 450 Rally, the fastest bike in the Dakar, weighs 465lbs. You really don’t want to have to lift 465lbs out of foot-deep, thick mud, do you? Especially not with a camera helicopter blowing hurricane-force sand in your face. And you haven’t just spent the day hauling ass across the Chilean desert. But that’s what the rally’s competitors had to do today, when a surface that looked firm turned out to be a thin crust disguising a nasty mud hole. Endo ahoy.
