2010 Baja 1000 pics & vids
I had the priveledge of racing in the 2010 Baja 1000 this last month.
Thought I'd share some pics and videos with you.
Competing in the Baja 1000 is a huge undertaking.
* 4 chase vehicles,
* 6 support/chase drivers,
* 8 satellite phones,
* one command center that was manned 24 hours a day for 48 hours and
* 5 racers.
We entered in the Pro Motorcycle class and were racing against top pros such as Ricky Johnson, Troy Lee, Louie Franco and Jeff Kaplan. We fought hard through 1061 miles and broken bones (one foot and one collarbone) to finish 4th place in our class. In a total time of around 31 hours.
