    Top 10 Mud Riding Pictures

    Anybody who has ever squeezed the throttle on an ATV or UTV has at least tried to get a little muddy from time to time. Of course, some people take it to the extreme.

    It’s these extreme mud riders who helped spawn some of the awesome mud racing events across the United States and around the world. We get out to these events whenever we can and always have our camera handy, as muddy conditions lend themselves to interesting photos.

    Here are 10 of our favorite mud racing pictures from the 12 months.

      We were scanning YouTube recently for ATV-related videos you might like to see when we came across an interesting mud racing video from Canada.

      It’s not a video so much as it’s a compilation of still images, but we thought it was pretty cool. The video was put together to promote a company that sells aftermarket parts, including a very cool looking Wild Boar radiator relocation kit and bumper.

      One other thing that stood out to us was that the mud race appeared to be taking place behind a bunch of suburban homes. We can’t imagine all those people were too thrilled to be hearing ATVs mucking up a vacant lot that’s just a stone’s throw away from their backyard.

        At long last mud riding pioneers, Gorilla Axle, decided to take its show bike for a ride through the pit. Of course this is no ordinary ATV – Gorilla Axle calls it the largest ATV in the world.

        This ATV started life out as a Can-Am Outlander 800. It now features 32-inch Silverback tires and a set of the most ridiculous axles you’ve ever seen…if you ducked a little you could probably walk right underneath it. In fact, a more impressive video would be one showing how the rider actually gets on this behemoth.

          ATV.com contributor Rick Sosebee recently sent in his High Lifter Mud Nationals Report, so we thought we’d comb YouTube and track down some videos for the ATV Blog.

          A quick search led to dozens of videos, most of which were shot by fans and who didn’t bother to do much editing. However, Warn PowerSports and All Terrain Research each stepped up with a well produced video, available below the jump.

          Rick told us how amazing the Mud Nationals were, but the videos provide the proof. You can’t watch these and not want to head to Texas next spring for the 2011 event.
