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.
We had
* 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.

We had a pretty good race going until our 2nd rider went down in the whoops of Old Puertecitios road and broke his collar bone. He limped it another 60 miles to Coco's corner. I was supposed to get on at Bay of LA but we had to run up to Coco's where I would take over for him and just add his mileage to my section. We lost about an hour and a lot of positions with this delay.

Super fun section onboard with me on bike 401X. This was a lot of fun. Whoops suck but it's part of Baja.

Dusty and into the night. Dusk and dust were terrible making it hard to see. Not the greatest vid as i forgot to periodically clean the lens. Enjoy
