A Four Wheeled Horse?

Try as we might, we cannot get Rob Bruce on a horse.  We wanted to share with you avid riders, riding of a different variety. Here is a photo of Rob and his “horse”. Rob competes in BMF races. The video of one of his races in Baja, Mexico is a little more gruelling than a casual day at a horse show.
