The Dakar Rally 2013, the ultimate off-road race

It’s described as an adventure equivalent to climbing Mt. Everest.

15 days. 50 nationalities.

The Dakar Rally is the ultimate off-road race that takes drivers across the world’s most incredible landscapes. It starts in Lima, Peru, and ends in  Santiago, Chile. According to the event’s website, the Dakar Rally pits some of the world’s greatest long-distance rally drivers against amateur competitors who come to take up the challenge with their motorcycles, quads, cars and trucks.

MyPowerBlock Member Alex Sanders shows off muddin’ videos

MyPowerBlock member Alex Sanders shared a few videos with us highlighting a good time in the mud with his off-road rig. Of course, you never see just one guy muddin’ by himself – he brings everyone he knows who doesn’t mind getting a little dirty.

In the video below, we think this is probably one of Alex’s friends, but check out what his off-road rig does to maneuver over that muddy hill.

To get the best view, make sure you hit “full screen” in the bottom right corner.

Do you have a video you’d like to show off? You never know when we might feature you! Post your pictures and vids to www.mypowerblock.com.

RV has fun in the mud

We know PowerBlock fans love their off-road vehicles. And depending on your definition of “off-road,” there may not be any limitations. We’ve certainly seen Ian pull off some really awesome projects.

And we thought we’ve seen it all – tractor pulls, mud slingin’, wheel stands in the mud – pretty much every one of those videos can be found from fans on MyPowerBlock. As far as entertainment, you all don’t let us down.

And then there was this video that was posted to YouTube, an “off-road” RV having fun in the mud.

According to the YouTube description, this event took place at the Trough Trucks event at the Lebanon Area Fair in Lebanon, Pa.
