So here is the ride in moab utah with Chris Durham and Walker Evans. The trail is full of rocks and boulders, and will find any weakness in your trucks set up. Notice the driving. They make it look easy, but many of the obstacles are very unforgiving when a mistake is made. Either body damage and serious time in the body shop, or mechanical failure due to the nature of the rocks. Unlike South Carolina the traction in the desert of Moab is no problem. This also can present a problem when wheels stop suddenly, causing the stopping force of the wheel to break and twist things up. My point is, these guys have experience and this trail is dangerous unless you 1.) know what you are doing, and 2.) have a group of well prepared drivers and trucks. Make no mistake it is a long walk from here to anywhere.  I hope you enjoy it. Comments appreciated.

riding with living legend Walker Evans

When it comes to desert racing, no name comes to mind faster than “Walker Evans”. Chris and Walker have been friends for quite some time. They often get together in Moab, Utah to ride together. We rode for several day with Walker and it was a great adventure. To say the least, whatever you think riding is, or whatever you think wheeling should be, they take it up several notches. I have met my share of celebrities, so I wasn’t certain what to expect. Walker was as nice as they come. He is a fierce driver as well as a gentleman.  After meeting him, it was really obvious why Walker and Chris get along so well. They are both easy going,  great guys, and experts behind the wheel.

Check out some of the photographs from the rides. Enjoy and feel free share the link with friends.
