|Baja Rally: Early registration open for Mexican Moto Rally in May 2014|
Early registration for the 2014 "Baja Rally 2.0" in Baja / Mexico opened this Sunday for advanced priority, which saves riders 25% off standard entry fees through the month of December 2013. Other perks of early registration include transferability of entry to another non-entered rider and choice of running number if available.
"We’re ready to parlay our successes of the Inaugural Baja Rally and apply a few improvements we gleaned in that event," explained rally director Scotty Breauxman. "On top of ground and air support operations, we are vetting a reliable tracking system to compliment the communication of search and rescue teams."
The Baja Rally 2.0 will be twice as long with four days of timed special stages capped off each day with a proper meal and camping under the Baja stars in remote bivouac locations.
"There’s so much we can do with an event like this," Breauxman continued. "We’ve stepped up the meal program and we're chosing between some bigger named chefs in the Ensenada and Valle De Guadalupe areas to oversee the project. I wouldn't be surprised if we were eating seasoned, grilled quail with pasta at least a few of the nights."
The 2014 Baja Rally 2.0 is a four-day, navigation-based rally-raid for motorcycles and the first of its kind event for Baja CA (Mexico). Riders use a compass and odometer to navigate a secret course with a paper road-book. There are no GPS tracks, course markers or any “pre-running” allowed so riders will rely on their ability to balance navigation and speed with reading the changing terrain.
This newly introduced motorsports event offers Baja CA, a more civilized and interesting experience for participants and fans alike. Dakar Veteran and Baja Champion Quinn Cody led most of the Inaugural Baja Rally 2013 but an engine failure stopped his effort only 10 miles from the finish.
