Throwing Down the Hammer

This year's King of the Hammers – dubbed as the toughest one-day off-road race on the planet – takes place February 7, 2014. The race has evolved from 12 teams racing for little more than bragging rights to more than 300 teams competing before more than 35,000 fans in person and nearly 500,000 watching online.

ESAB and LetzRoll Offroad are excited to be part of KOH and have teamed up to throw down the hammer with challenges and incentives for racers and attendees alike.

Here's what we have in store:
