The anticipation at the starting line. The noise. The fear of storming over bumps and blind corners at full-tilt in the cabin of a Trophy Truck... Experience it all against the beautiful backdrop of the Arizona desert.

With the camera rolling just before the start flag drops and the action ripping right from the line to the streets of Parker and into the bush, this is one of my favorite off-road ride along videos ever. Half an hour is a bit of time to invest on one YouTube clip but hey you're only at work, right? You can always skip through for highlights.

The Best In The Desert (BITD) racing series kicked off February with the "Parker 425" desert race in Parker, Arizona. Derrick Sproule, of Alberta, Canada who you're riding with in this video had a pretty good run, until he didn't. You'll see.
