Video

Digby, the organizer and co-leader of the Rally Indochina ride on the Ho Chi Minh Trail in 2011, put together a video that is a compilation with clips from that ride, plus a ride we took in Laos in 2008, as well as some rides that I was not on in Laos and what look to be in the far north of Vietnam. The scenes in this RR where the earth mover falls over the road and the semi-truck blows a rear tire and swings into oncoming traffic are on this clip.

Full disclosure -- while I did many of the routes in this clip, I did not ride any of those high single tracks with the steep drop-offs on one side. I think those are ll in the far north of Vietnam. Look pretty scary to me.
