I've been in San Felipe for a few weeks, and seem to have somehow landed a spot in the 'San Felipe Baja 250' race. So after all the kindness and generosity that ADV has provided me, I thought it only fair that I now bore the knickers off you, with a full blow by blow account of how this little adventure pans out. I've been overland riding for almost a year now, and this event couldn't be a better suited anniversary celebration. Thirty thousand miles and twenty two countries away from home, and I'm grabbing this chance of a lifetime to race Baja. The final decision to participate came only yesterday. The opportunity came from a friend I met here in 'Pete's Camp' by the name of Kay. It's been a lifelong ambition of Kay's to race in Baja, and I was in the right place at the right time. Within an hour of meeting Kay, he invited me to be the second rider in his team. Since meeting Kay four days ago, we've been out riding in the sand three times. For me, the first thing to figure out, was whether I'm anywhere near good enough to take part. It seems I am, nearly, if I train like a bastard for the next month, and have luck on my side, and have the benefit of a fantastic bike, and maybe I'm not good enough but I'm going to try anyway. So that's the first instalment. I'll endeavour to keep this thread up to date, with the help of my loyal and talented support team (girlfriend Charlotte Charlotte Goose and fellow Brit overlander Andy Andrew UK).
