Read thru the last dozen pages and still not sure of the Official status.

Best option from OC?

Thanks - Brad
it was closed up until Feb 1, last weekend. it's now open. ride on through.

nope. from Ballarat towards the 190 you take Indian Ranch Rd to Trona Wildrose Rd where it was closed. that wasn't an option. but it's now open so this is a moot point.

Didn't see you at DVdaze this year Brad. You missed some good times, and I didn't explode a rim this year.

Sorry I missed out. Son Colton lost his ride when JCR dumped the Baja program. Been trying to help put the new WFOX team together. Going to San Felipe to do pre-run/logistics.

Wish him well as we join the ranks of privateers!

Anyway, most of my riding/ racing is fairly uneventful. When I ride with you guys it's get sick, loop out and stare down the barrell of a rusty pistol!!

It's really bad that the team that wins the baja 1k gets dumped. Congrats to your son on winning.

The Morning Report says it is Closed but above riders said just a closed sign but is passable.
