Entry fees have not been finalized yet, but I expect them to be in that ballpark.

I would guess it to be around $1500.00 to $2000.00

Just trying find out if there will be an entry fee for support vehicles plus mechanics.

I've had to pay for that sort of stuff in the African rallies

Hi Scott,

Really looking forward to this!

Its time to pick the bike that will be subjected to this torture, and to start sorting out setup. Without giving away anything more than we would generally know before any rally, could you let us know:
1. We've heard about the dunes, but will there be much mileage on fast tracks? How about pavement or road liaisons? (gearing and tires question)
2. Should relative slowpokes like me plan on riding in the dark much? (lighting question)

fun fun
Charlie

Details are still not final, but at the moment it looks like this:
Yes, a decent amount of non-dunes fast tracks, including some flat out top gear.
Very little pavement or liaison, probably only at beginning of first stage and end of last stage. Zero mid-stage liaison or pavement.
Paddle tires not allowed, DOT tires required, per FIM rally rules.
Bring your own whoops and rocks, because we haven't found any yet!

I don't expect any dark riding, unless you have serious problems on stage.

You'll be fine in Baja. It's not like it was a few years ago. Other corridors are primary concern now a days.

Diabolico isn't in Baja. It's actually even safer where we are heading because it's such a horrible place to transport through or try to hide anything there.

Good idea!

A couple of days ago I was talking to a neighbor about the rally. When I told him about entry fees he thought that's how much we pay the competitors, and he wouldn't race it no matter how much we paid him!

But to be honest, we've backed off a bit on the "crazy" stuff. We have to work around a nature preserve this year, which has taken away one of my favorite super challenging features. We may be able to bring it back in the future, but for our first year we need to keep things manageable for the competitors as well as our helpers. This first year it will for sure be challenging, but for those who are afraid it may be "too hard", I would say come and do it and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Those who want to win or place well will have to take on a few bigger challenges. Those who just want to finish will be spared the worse in exchange for a few extra minutes on their overall time.

BTW, we should be announcing the entry fees VERY soon (maybe tomorrow), and entries will open not long after that.
