For everyone who is not from SoCal..

There are 3 parts to this whole adventure.

1. Getting Bike and gear and yourself there
2. Doing the Race
3. Getting Bike and gear and yourself back

Part 1 and 2 are as much of a pain in the rear as anything else.

If there could be an expediter set up to collect bikes in a couple of strategic locations in the USA and pack them in a container and deliver to Mexicali. Then racers can fly Southwest Air into San Diego, and then Fly back out of Cabo.

Then at the end- Pack the bikes up in Cabo and send them to the USA.

Racers are responsible for getting bike to and from USA based transport hub.

I have 3 warehouse locations capable of accepting bikes and gear to consolidate for a load. (NEW HAMPSHIRE, TEXAS, L.A.)

I have at least 5 bikes coming out of TEXAS.

I can get my logistics team to come up with costs for a 20' and 40' container. Price would just be a split between however many bikes we get in there and back.

Anyone else need this kind of assistance OR could help set this up?

Someone already doing this so I don't have to re-invent the wheel?
I have a Broker and Wherehouse in Calexico that is 5min from the Mexicali Border and 15 min from the NORRA Host Hotel that we can use
