    They are the motorcycling equivalent of a sniper. F your day up out of nowhere.

    I'll let somebody else dig up the video, but the short story is:

    "NASA Rally Sport RallyMoto races are 150+ mile tests of endurance, speed, and navigation. The SandBlast, RallyWV and Black River Stages are the few point-to-point stage rallies in the US that allow both RallyMoto (motorcycles) and Rally cars. "http://www.nasarallysport.com/main/
