That's the plan and this year we should have a helicopter for safety but we're not going to need it for the dirt bikers RIGHT GUYS!

My team will be there. We race a 7200 truck, and have raced almost all of the different race organizations. Last year we races the Mex 1000, and it was by far the most fun we have had racing. I can't wait for this years race.

I think this is the best race format for less experianced riders that want to get the thrill of baja with the saftey of a well run event . Short of a guided ride with secret trails ,this is the easiest and safest way to see the length of Baja. If you get your wife to drive(or ride) the chase truck you can sell it as a mexican holiday !!

last year I think it was 130 miles unassited from BOLA To viscano BD set up a refuel on the longest stage which made it about 100 miles I think .
I used a 5 gal tank and had lots. Mag 7 also had pit services. This year is different so have to wait till course distance comes out but would think nothing less tha 100 miles to safe

I was told by a guy that has run this race that he reccomends a bib mousse in front and a heavy duty tube in rear - any comments would appreciated

Also any reccomendations on what brand / type tire to use ?

Thanks

Steve
