Thanks for all the upbeat words guys. I hope the other solo guys and teams do well and stay safe. With first hand and fresh look at this course all those that challenge and or finish are tough mofos.

Right now I'm in San Ignacio at the Rice and Beans patio, on my 6th beer and not wanting to end the adventure.

Here is to all the riders this year.

Damn sorry to hear you are out. Damn happy to hear the injuries are not more serious, and you are able to enjoy some beers and think about the next thing. Perhaps, the Mexican 1000 would be a good way to get your Baja fix, without having to wait a whole year! We'd love to see you down there in May!

So sorry to read it's come to an end. So much prep and time put into it....

I still hope to pick up a T-Shirt if I see you in Ensenada Tuesday or Wednesday.

Radek-such a bummer. I was and still am pulling for ya! I've been in your shoes but never got as far as you did so I feel your disappointment. You might as well kick back and enjoy the rest of your time down there.after you get looked at. Bet you could find a comfy seat in a chase truck!

Congrats for giving it your all. Sad to hear, but glad you are OK.

Make the most of it while you are there and learn any tips and tricks that can be useful in the future.

Keep your chin up.

Real sad to hear the news Radek, hope nothing serious that needs mending , you are young and will recover well/quickly.

Maybe helping others as a crew member will give you enough 'energy' that will keep the fires buring until next year.

Best of luck, gale

Absolutely correct Robert,
I don't think our paths will cross now, I was hoping spend a little time with Radek in Lapaz to hear about the journey, I'm still bummed about it.

I drove all day yesterday from san ignacio to ensenada. I stayed the night at Bahia hotel which is right at the start line. Sigh.
I really hoped maybe the ankle would get better and maybe I could still do it. This morning it's much worse. I thought about staying but I can't get around on this foot so I would just get in the way when helping someone.



So I decided to take the shameful drive back to the border. Passing all those rigs with bikes going the opposite way of me really hit things home.
I dropped off my sat phones at all road sat and ran into Dave (271x) who broke down in the same silt area I busted up my foot. He proceeded to tell me that SCORE just removed that section of the course yesterday. One day too late for me. That's how it goes sometimes. It's not the silts fault, it's the riders.

Dave had the mcmillans bail him out, truck his bike back, and fly him on their plane back to san diego. Nice. I actually talked to them yesterday at a gas station as they had the 271x bike strapped to their trailer with the buggy.
Funny enough they told me that the section west from constitution is really bad also. "it's 120 miles of whoops down there. worst we have ever seen down there" I don't know myself as I never made it that far. Funny enough again, I was following their convoy and some local coming the other way ran his car into the side of their trailer. He bounced off the trailer and almost took us out as he crossed the lane. One of the wheels of the trailer was toast and his car lost a front end. Driving in Mexico is fun.

Once again, good luck to all the riders. I'll be cheering for you all.
