Like we mentioned in yesterday’s GP highlights, the Qatar track looked like something we’d only see with a Playstation controller in our hands. Lit by a massive stock of flood lights, it was the first FIM MX GP to take place at night. As is the new standard for racing, two GoPro cameras were mounted to a few helmets and riders took to the track to show just how brutal the Middle Eastern circuit was.
Watching this video makes us realize just how skilled Desalle and Cairoli are. There are sections of the track, mostly corners and ruts, that are pitch black, but the two fly through them with appeared ease.
