Ride the Divide Movie

Ride the Divide is a documentary that chronicles the toughest mountain bike race in the world - The Great Divide Mountain Bike Race. The competitors travel North to South over the Continental Divide riding for 2700 miles from Banff, Canada to the border of Mexico - not for hours, nor days, but for weeks. Each rider is self-supported, meaning that they carry all their own gear, food and water.

Budapest Bamako Rally

Oh man, this looks like so much fun. I have to try this one day. 

The Budapest-Bamako is a low-budget version of the Dakar Rally and goes from Budapest, Hungary to Bamako, Mali through the Sahara. It passes through Hungary, Austria (or Slovenia), Italy, France, Spain, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania and Mali. The Budapest-Bamako was inspired by the Paris Dakar Rally. It promises a sense of adventure and the romance of Africa, much like the Paris-Dakar did in its early days. There are no entry restrictions. As long as a vehicle is street legal, it can join the event. The B2 also raises money and supplies for local communities and charities in Mali.
Check out this 45 minute documentary.
