Fano and I rode maybe a quarter of the San Felipe whoops. Oh man. Frog has his work cut out for him. He is in good shape and the bike is working well so la Paz and a finish is close by.

Fano isn't afraid to set the new fashion trend.

We made it to ensenada today and have been eating lots of tacos and running errands.

We did have non scheduled repair to the truck. The rear brakes went metal to metal. Moral of the story is don't trust big o when you ask them to check the brakes while doing tires. It was a fun drive from San Felipe to ensenada while trying to not use the brakes.

But we made it and its official.

This hits close to home. My life revolves around my boys and riding/racing, and it sounds so cliche, but it seems like just yesterday that my oldest looked and acted exactly like your son. Now if we're not going riding or racing somewhere every weekend, all three of my boys wonder what is wrong.

Live it to the fullest. So excited for you!!!

And to top it off, the UPS guy dropped an awesome "Rana de Hierro Racing" t-shirt on my doorstep today. Pay Pal coming your way.

Keep it on two wheels!!!!

Hey I recognize those bathrooms. Hopefully no bikes disappeared this year. That was a major bummer.

Anyway, back to the present...fingers perched on the keys. I'm ready to go Frog.

No more drinking as of now...water and tacos.

Yep he is focused. No alcohol for the past few nights, he did some stretching this evening, and is already in bed.
Tomorrow is tech and final prep and then GAME ON!

Honestly, frog has inspired me to at least get to the tip of Baja. Not in a competitive way, but at least move that direction. This is a good thread.
