Landrover G4 Challenge

The landrover G4 Challenge is on this year, and have opened recruitment for U.S. participants to represent their country. Participants will go through a series of challenges, gearing up for the finals that will be held in 2009. This is one of the most serious off-road adventures, a team race spanning across the globe. In 2003, the challenge finale was held in Moab, UT. The race has gone through various rugged and rough terrains in Thailand, Laos, Brazil and Bolivia.

This year's national selections will be held in May, in the Nevada Desert. They claim that the Challenge will be "environmentally sensitive" and fully carbon offset through Climate Care (whatever that means). Don't care how you spin it, you can't really have a totally environmentally clean off-road rampage with vehicles.

Anyway, still a pretty cool adventure race. Registrations and information can be found at

What an adventure! I signed up for the updates, thanks for sharing this. I bet it was great to have the finals in Moab.

I agree. Any time you have vehicles off road, you are ripping up the terrain. I'm sure it will be a great adventure for one lucky person. Hopefully they respect the land they are riding across.
