For those that are not aware, Ben Grabham is one of the very best Asutralian Enduro riders and primarily competes in the longer desert races held in and around Australia.



In April of this year Ben was racing in the Condo750 rally in NSW when he was found beside the track unconcious in a section of track that was flat out in top gear, nearby was a very dead Kangaroo.



Ben was severely injured with extensive neck and head injuries which are well explained in teh subsequent videos that outline his recovery, the surgery and the future.

The third video shows why helmets are critical when riding a bike

Thanks Gaz. Having ridden the Finke track last year 3 weeks after the race it just blows my mind how Grabham and the others complete the race in under 2 hours. These guys lay it all on the line.
