Sordo vs Lacondeguy: Time for Tea?


Hardly a new concept this, granted. But the day we tire of watching a proper WRC hand doing his thang for the camera is the day we pack PH up and move to the Greek Islands. Ditto, frankly, the spectacle of a pro downhill mountain biker rider not dying while careening down a near vertical slope.

Throw them both together and stir in the marketing budget afforded to a global energy drink manufacturer (not to mention an international car brand) and you get the cinematic equivalent of a Haribo Starmix: shiny, sweet, moreish and, yes, utterly frivolous.

Still, it confirms - if confirmation were really needed - that Dani Sordo and Andreu Lacondeguy (who apparently has LOVE DIRT tattooed on his knuckles) can drive/ride a bit. And that Lousa in Portugal is probably quite a pretty place to visit. Kettle on.

    Hats off to both - but the bike guys edges it from an achievement perspective - surely? Downhill at those speeds must takes balls of steel and absolute lunacy, if not faith

    As mentioned in the article, not exactly original - Rob Warner did the same thing for 'You BET' back in 2010!

    Way way earlier, try 92/93 more like looking at his bike (and hair!)
