Cheers for that! Alot cheaper than some of the desert rallies we normally enter! Will do some more research on this.. could make for a really cool season closer next year! Since watching Dust2Glory, the madness has been in my mind!

Best of luck all who are racing this year!

They are a total PIA, in a few weeks there will be a PDF release on the SCORE website with all the info.
The good thing is (unless something has changed since the 500) all you need to worry about is mounting the otterbox, which you can buy at REI, Sportsman's, ect, the device is installed on the startline.

Very few will avg 60mph in those chewed up rocky whoops between Matomi & Puertecitos. Sure Papa Fernandez to Coco's is WFO (and beyond to where you turn off and into Calamajue), but then it's not that fast through Calamajue wash out to El Crucero and over to BoLA road. Those sections between Puertecitos and Coco's and below BoLA are what used to bring the average speeds up when comparing to loop 1000 averages. Again now with that long paved section between Puertecitos and Gonzaga it sux.

Would much rather be riding after dark than at sunset. Twilight is THE worst.

I really wish I would have started racing Baja sooner.

From the schedule of event it looks like over 40 hrs. 30 hrs would be a 37 mph avg which would dnf most of the field.

That is what I was looking at and thought it had to be wrong. I am sure I will get the skinny at the expo, should be a good time.

Last 4 times it's finished in La Paz....
Average race miles = 1035
Average hours allowed to finish = 42
Call it 25 mph minimum to finish

For sure like SBad said the speed limited asphalt sections really screw up the OA speed average now days
