Hold onto your beds as four times Tatts Finke Desert Race winner David Walsh and KTM Australia HMG Motorsport teammate Liam Walsh take you for a ride prepping their 2024 KTM 500 EXC-Fs for this year’s event.

The Tatts Finke Desert Race is awe-inspiring and frightening in equal measure and easily comparable to the IOM TT as one of the maddest motorcycle events on the planet.

This video takes a cool look at KTM Australia HMG Motorsport team preparations with bike set-up plus highlights the madness of the speed they run on the whooped-out Finke Desert trails with trackside and onboard footage. 

Cool things to spot are how important sag setting is to the riders plus their foot and leg technique on the flat-stick sections of the track.
