Riding a 180bhp litre-class superbike in the sand must take some doing...!

Six-time Dakar Rally winner, Frenchman Stephane Peterhansel (now Editorial Director of the L’Integral magazine) recently took on an interesting challenge – to ride a Yamaha R1 on the sand dunes of Merzouga, in Morocco. And all it took for him to accomplish the feat was a set of hand-cut Michelin tyres and replacement handlebars. Going by the pics here, Peterhansel seems to have had fun surfing sand dunes aboard his 180bhp sportsbike. Cool!
