Awesome riding Matt! I tried to get a video of your wheelie out of the first turn but you were to fast for me to keep it in frame. I don't know how to post it so I emailed it to you.

Rolling up to the line I told myself no wheelies or power slides at the start but obviously I don't have any self control.

Way to go Matt! The call out at the awards was classic. This was a tough race and to finish solo is amazing. Viva Baja! Ready to head back south today. Love that place.

The first pit the crew would see Frog was El Crusero at rm 350. We arrived in plenty of time to get set up. Fano was in full crew form

The plan was for the crew to always setup as close to baja pits as we could.
Frog rolled into BP about 4:30


Frog was in good spirits and was feeling strong


We strapped the lights on the bike and began working on a front brake issue. This was a terrible pit. We spent way too much time bleeding out a brake system only to discover later that there was no brake pads. Actually it was Angryshawn that discovered the missing pads. Luckily we had an extra donor bike so I jumped up on the rack and began stripping the pads from dumbgirls bike.


53 min later :( Frog is off

Our next scheduled meet was Viscaino at rm 550. The halfway point. This pit was hopping with crews and locals. It was complete madness. We could not find baja pits so we backed the truck as close to the course as possible. The TT trucks were flying by less than 10' from us. Because we could not park close to BP we had to do something to get Frogs attention. This should work;)

Viscaino went smooth. We swapped out wheels/tires, Frog took in some liquids and food and he was on his way.
