If you watch to the end you’ll see the old Robby’s Uprising logo. I’m pretty sure we were doing social media before social media. Thanks, ning.
We had developed a relationship with Micron through racing in Baja. Micron had joined the team for the 2007 Dakar.
Long before gopro, Micron created an onboard recording system with a moving screen that cleared the path for the lens. Pretty innovative for the time.
This was my first edit while trying to find solutions to become the first team on the Dakar rally to broadcast themselves.
At the time (and currently) the ASO worked hard to extract every dollar from the teams and when they tried to extract broadcast fees from our team, we decided to brand the productions as video race reports.
I believe they still got us on the data though.
Here is one of my favorites from the entire race.
Ironically the very first video I ever posted to youtube. This is the same chassis that has now been converted to the 4×4 Unicorn.
