One High Flying Bronco

High-speed, desert-bred Broncos are quickly becoming the norm south of the border these days, so when Chano Aldrete sent us a picture of his all-business Bronco, we knew we had to catch a glimpse of this beast in action. And it's safe for you to assume that it did not disappoint. We caught up with Chano in Ocotillo Wells just days after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake rocked Mexicali. Despite the quake's effects, Chano made his way across the border for the photo session ready to show what his Bronco was capable of. The Bronco doubles as a chase truck for Roger Norman's Trophy Truck team, so it was no surprise how easily it soaked up the jumps making quick work of Devil's Slide and Shell Reef. One thing's for sure, this Bronco is definitely shaking things up in the desert.
