    George Hammel & Ryan Ritter

    In this episode of The SXS Guys Offroad Podcast, we waste no time talking with George Hammel of the Dirt Life Show and Ryan Ritter of the Insiders Podcast about their trip down to the Baja 1000! They were down there to attempt a full race live stream for the Scanlon Motorsports Group. This discussion might be a bit nerdy, but if you're into it, tune-in and hear about the wins and hurdles associated with trying to produce a big budget production with a small team in the middle of the Mexico desert!

    2022 Holiday Gift Guide

    2022 Holiday Gift Guide

    In this annual episode of The SXS Guys Offroad Podcast, I reach out to people all across our industry for gift ideas for the offroad community for the 2022 Holiday Gift Guide. Typically, this is a guide that we put together ourselves and then expand upon, but I though it would be fun to get different perspectives. We have guests from racers to media personalities, vloggers to manufacturers, installers to desert pre-runners. If you need a gift idea for the offroader in your life (even if that means for yourself), this is the episode for you!

Solid Episode

Just listened to the Jim Beaver and Brittney Cardone interview. Lots of good content. Nice one.

Fleetwood Gearbox335 ,

Decent Show

Low and behold a fellow Rutherford County native on first episode I catch (Hubert), he’s a cool down to earth dude. Came an rode my little MX track before he went to the big show. I liked the message, take care of the trails and parks so they don’t shut down.

Jeff in Debary ,

Meh was good until he went full business tard

Good show most of the time. last podcast “where have I been” was total garbage and just an hour and half of him rambling about his failed business adventures. Good luck but just stick to what you love and maybe treat this as a hobby not a place to make money.
