Dave Joyce and Marco Broccardo (video)

After years of planning, Dave Joyce and Marco Broccardo – with teammate Alex Harris – successfully crossed the Empty Quarter from Oman to Dubai in January 2013. Strapped to their +350-kilogram cart, they hauled over dunes and through sinking in soft sand, pulling for at least eight hours a day. The elements too were against them as they suffered in ‘winter’ temperatures that exceeded 45C – in the shade! Dave and Marco tell of their adventure across this virtually uninhabited and largely unexplored desert.
