On track for Dakar 2015: The Gardians of the Dakar


Watch the rough riders of Red Bull Desert Wings shake down their machines in the wilds of France.

In the Wild West, they have cowboys. In France – or specifically a small corner of southeast France, the Camargue – they have gardians. Their job is to herd cattle, on horseback, and they take it so seriously that they even wear cowboy boots, checkered shirts and big hats. You’d be forgiven for thinking that these dudes had got lost on the way to a remake of The Lone Ranger.
