So, during my recent trip to the desert, I kept joking to myself, why zipping around on my bike, that it seemed as if it was born to race across deserts..... The joke being that Cagiva Elefants were born to race across deserts, by virtue of being designed specifically to race in the Paris-Dakar from day one.

Anyway, came across this video a while back and kept meaning to post it.. So here it! Short compilation of footage of Cagiva bikes competing in the Paris-Dakar in the 80's and early 90's....

Do not miss the epic blind air at 4:00 into the video!!
