I strongly support BBM's suggestions for one simple reason. IF you have a terminal failure (aka DNF) you would not be stranded in the middle of Baja with no way to get you or your bike to Cabo for the trip home.
Just say'n. We won over all the first 2 years and we were out of the race in San Flippy last year. DNF happens even to BBM!!!
