Quote from their website http://www.transahara2004.com :

"Transahara day 2
First of all we tried to cross the dunes, but we only got dirty and didn’t make as much kilometers as we wanted. We don’t enjoy kiting as much as we would love too... "

The boys are well prepared..

"I already guessed so and the practice confirms my doubts: in the softer sand passages, the narrow tires of our mountain boards sink quickly, creating us problems and making us sometimes even to fall. "

And they are in top shape too, check those abs.

Quote"Frequently we stop on our way, maybe for passing an hour in the pleasant shadow of our tent. We refresh ourselves with water and ice, the only things that are really important in the middle of the desert."

Now thats really something, ice in the middle of the desert. I admire those hardcore athletes, suffering so much...

And theres always some time for important sponsor photos..

And "real athletes" apreciating the adventure of the desert...

Im not sure the sponsors actually have ANY idea what is happening with their money - which sponsor would pay for these old farts to look at boobs in the middle of the desert + make pictures to prove it?!
Redbull should really rethink who they sponsor here. What about all the young adventurers that are not multi-millionair ex-porno stars from the 70s and are really risking life and limb?!

who said anything about the middle of the desert as far as i can tell, they've just rocked up at the side of the road and unloaded everything 20m into the sand.

i guess there is some justice in this, they are taking red bull for a ride, just like they've been taking us for a ride 1.50 a can, i ask you...
