Anyone want to fly to LaPaz and take over my part on the chase crew now ;)
Now the long drive back up :(
Me and Fano will at least get on the bikes and ride some of the course and meet frog at Laredo. That's better than sitting in the truck.

Incredible accomplishment Matt! I had the opportunity to ride through the first half of the silt section, until our bike motor quit, and drive through the second half in a 4wd truck to retrieve the bike. And, I concure with your description of that section. I'll try not to butcher your words: "'d rather ride 1000 miles of the San Felipe whoops than do that again!." Congradulations on a tremendous accomplishment!

My dose centavos....when you get past Scorpion Bay, hook a left at the sign and ride the low road to San Ignacio. It goes through a fishing camp/town called Datil. You've already been down the east side and this route avoids the silt beds of the high road where they race.

I agree. Best speech! So did you ever find the RPM guys???

Also.. It is always hard to find race results, they come out eventually somewhere but you have to be on top of it I have found out. In the meantime Breauxman LIVE on Facebook posted unofficial results on Saturday night on his awesome page, the only place I found to see any kind of real time moto sightings of the masses.




BTW I found my 2 local guys from No. Colorado finished 10th and 11th, and Brady Sharp was an ironman like you Matt.

... and in case you missed it earlier, here it is again Matt - for you, your theme song:

HereIGoAgainOnMyOwn.mpg ROCK OUT!

Yup... one of our riders was stuck in the silt around RM 537 for about 10 hours. We were able to retrieve him and I jumped on the bike only to have the motor quit 40 miles later. I couldn't fix it and couldn't reach anyone on the radio so eventually I ditched the bike and started walking - but I was lucky enough to catch a ride with another chase team looking for their stuck truck. Oh well... Baja wins this time

You must have been on 259x, your rider was still there and said he was hurting too much to continue but that the bike was fine. I was on 201x and reported his location and situation to Baja Pits and everyone else I came across with a radio. glad to hear he got out.

Those silt beds were ridiculous! There was carnage everywhere

My first race was in 08 and was a nhha it was 94 miles and I was sore as hell for a week. Did my first 1000 as a two person team that same year. Since then I've done some local races, 2009 v2r and 2010 baja 1000 as a four person team.
