The Playground Earth All-Terrain Relay was five adventures over thousands of miles, all on one tough set of BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires.

Now you'll need to be patient for the mountain bike episode featuring Kyle Strait, Cameron Zink, and Taylor Sage. They had the tires for the fourth stage of the rally, and took them to an undisclosed location and gave them the licks they wanted. Stay tuned.

About the rally:
Five adventures, thousands of miles and the same four tires.

Top-level athletes and outdoorsmen took the same set of BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A® KO tires to the places they play. They drove them on different vehicles through the toughest terrain they could find to see how far they could push the tires - and the fun.

"PROVING GROUNDS" kicks off the relay and introduces participants to the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A® KO tire's capability at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, UT. They get behind the wheel of Jeep Wrangler Rubicons and Ford F-150 SVT Raptors to "crawl, run and jump" during two days of off-roading fun. They find out just how tough the All-Terrains really are, before taking them on (and off) the road.

The BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A® KO is the tire that created the all-terrain category. Tough enough for work and for all the places you play. It's your ticket to Playground Earth.

 Ok, there is product placement and sponsorship information; but this crossed the line. That was just an advertisement. Disappointed PinkBike, disappointed...
