Rally On The Rocks Day 1: Steel Bender - They Aren't Kidding

Published online: May 16, 2012 Powersport News

Day one of the 2012 Rally on the Rocks is now in the books and the crew of Dirt Toys Magazine was on hand to once again enjoy the rally in Moab, UT.

The weather was overcast and the daytime temps about 80 degrees F-a perfect day for riding.

Our group went on the guided tour (our guide was Dustin Sweeten) on the Steel Bender trail and whoever named that trail was spot on. You can ask more than one driver how they feel about the name Steel Bender. And some side-by-side drivers in our group found out to a greater extent than others of us did. Enough said.

Steel Bender offers creek crossings, plenty of rock climbing, sandy stretches, smooth rock and rock ledges. It has a difficulty rating of 6.

Here are some pictures from day one. We did mount our GoPro on the Kymco UXV and got some great shots and video footage.
