Video: Peruvian Mototaxi Junket (death race)

I’m a competitive person, plain and simple.  If I lose at something, I will do everything that needs to be done to assure a win in the future.  This is both a blessing and a curse.  It forces you to try new things and research new methods of doing things and learning about extreme efficiencies.  On the other hand, people hate you because you beat everyone at everything.

That said, the Adventure Racing team Stars, Bars and Scars was co-founded by Jeff McMahan and myself to participate in world-wide adventure races, and win.  Recently our team was racing across Peru in South America in what I would considered the world’s most dangerous race.

This is the official promo for the Mototaxi Junket, you will see Jeff and I in there a few times.  Watch for all the pole cam shots, the Captain America helmet and the Red Skull.

You can read all about the race by visiting the SBS Mototaxi Junket micro blog!

For those of you who are dying to know, no we didn’t win the race.  We were duped.  We mistakenly gave up our first place position to show compassion to another American team who had fallen behind.  In an effort to help them, we lost by a few hours, over the course of a 3 week race.
