BMW's dirt division has reason to crow...recently, BMW factory rider Andreas Lettenbichler dominated the Red Bull Romaniacs Extreme Enduro event while riding his BMW G 450 X. Lettenbichler finished the 800-kilometer enduro throughout the wilds of Transylvania with a time of 20:29:11. His next event is the extreme "Roof of Africa" in November in Lesotho, South Africa.
Yes, riding across a ROOF in Romania! They are just a different sort of crazy.
Meanwhile, on a continent far, far, away, Greg Tracy was winning the legendary Pike's Peak (Colo.) Hill Climb on a BMW HP2 Enduro. Greg covered the 12.42 mile course in 12:29 with an average speed of 59.7 MPH. Greg bested the second place rider by 23 seconds.
