New Ads

S and S offroad magazine had a great treat for me in January featuring a Norra ad using a shot from Bink Designs of me going past the San Javier Mission




http://issuu.com/awodigitaledition/d...road_jan2013/1

Then I got the link for the February and bam ... got slapped again!



http://issuu.com/awodigitaledition/d...ffroad_feb2013

S&S Off Road Magazine has been published by off roaders for off roaders since 1982. Reader driven, we print what YOU send in!

http://www.sandiegooffroad.com/

https://www.facebook.com/SSOffRoadMa...ref=ts&fref=ts

The magazine is ran by a great couple and covers all kinds of desert racing. They also run a offroad camp for kids at risk .. thundering trails

I didnt know about this mag but will be a subscriber from now on

That is an awesome photo!! Very cool indeed!!

I can't remember who, but one of you guys did the sweet Dakar style Number Plates for last year's race....any plans on offering these again? I loved the rally raid look of them and thought I'd like to use it on the car this year.

maybe I should keep the old 640 instead of replacing her a lighter sexier mount.

I have been given CRAPY peel and stick numbers ( AMA races)

Everybody keeps bring up the 2k entry fee ------- why?????? 4-days of racing
this is way cheeper then most Score races....................

racing is not for the Faint at hart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

See below:

5 Days - 6 Nights $2895
7 Days - 8 Nights $3795

and thats just that.. a tour .. not a race

if you look up how much the entry is for the vegas to reno and times it by 4 this race is just about even cost wise only it runs the peninsula !!

Questions about Mexican 1000

Inmates:

I'm signed up and looking forward to my first Mexican 1000. Tim Morton is moving my gear along each day but I'm otherwise coming down alone with no crew or pit support (it seems Mag 7 isn't a great option).

Couple of questions so I can prepare:

It looks like the longest special last year was 175 miles. Does it make sense to run a 19 liter tank (instead of my current 13 liter on my 500xcw) and not have to worry about any sort of fueling during a stage? (I'm thinking YES)

Are Pemex stations along the transit sections a reliable source of fuel? Or do I need to weasel a fuel can along with another teams support crew.

Do I need to carry food and water for the entire day? or stash a care package with another team or race organizer?

Is there any riding at night? Should I bring along my helmet light?

Any other stupid questions I should be asking?

I would say more fuel is always a good bet.

The Pemex stations are great if you get to them when they are open. One mechanical problem that ties you up for hours making repairs, and you might not make it there. Good luck figuring out which team to stash a can with. The only time that you'll see a chase crew is on a laison or end/beginning of a stage. Unless someone is only chasing you, then you really can't plan on that. Having the emergency only service from Mag 7 might be an option. I too am very disappointed in what happened last year with them...especially since they never really apologized or offered a discount for returning members as a show of good faith.....because when you sign up, you become a member. Not a great way to treat a member.


This also goes for riding at night. Even if you are slow, you should not end up driving at night..unless you have a mechanical or injury that literally stops you for a while. I would at least have enough lighting so you could ride out at normal speed. Because if your that late, there's no reason to speed, you would have already accrued the penalty points...get there safe.

I would carry enough food and water to allow you to spend the night or more in the desert. On the laisons, nothing stops you from getting a taco, but you do want to keep moving. I would stash a cooler with Tim so you have some goodies waiting for you at the bivy so you know you'll have something to eat.

People (racers and locals) will always help you, but it is good practice to plan ahead. Just like how you should dress for the crash, you might want to prep for the break-down.


Of course these are just my opinions as a relative noob. I'm sure the Baja gurus here have much more insight to offer.

You can never have enough fuel!!!!!
stations are hit and miss
You'll need fuel on day one after stage one before stage to no gas Station
You can get gas at the end of special stage II day one in San Felipe
And special stage 3 there is gas in Gonzaga Most of the time But that gas
station is in the middle of the special test the special test
Then there is gas most of the time in the bay of LA

That is his day one if it was up to me I would run the big tank

But that's just my opinion
