I'm going for my third try. They announced at the SS300 that we're going through Gabbs again this year. Who else is riding this year ?

I'm racing. Just acquiring parts and getting my pit support program dialed in right now.

Awesome, good luck. It’s on my bucket list, aiming for next year. Interested to learn best pit services (Baja pits?), chase, and other solo rider challenges.
if you can go 100 miles or so between gas, pitting is pretty straightforward with one chase vehicle. I.e. they can typically catch you every 2-3 pit locations. if you have less range, you may need to go to the remote pit at rawhide and will need two chase vehicles in that case or hire someone like Baja Pits. this year, BP is offering a one pit option for rawhide, I think. of course, we won't know for sure until they release the pitlist/book. if you have time, you should come out this year and check it out, maybe help one of the chase teams to get an idea of what it's like. we (solo riders) are pretty friendly with each other and help out where we can.

When I did it in 2016 I used 2 chase trucks and BFG pits for Rawhide. Worked out well for me. If you can’t afford 2 trucks then just use one and hire a pit service. Typically Baja pits is congested in the beginning of the race so if you are competitive, avoid using the first few pits if possible and use your chase team instead.

we won't know for sure until they release the pitlist/book.
Pit mileages are up on the site. Mary sent me an email and I filled out the application for Baja Pits. I would have loved to have secured two chase vehicles/crews so I didn't have to use them but, I've heard good things. Hopefully I can stay on pace.

From the mileages it looks like the course will be same/similar to 2017 from Miller's on and maybe the first 100 miles or so. there are a bunch of routes they can do around Tonopah. it makes sense to have Baja Pits for Rawhide, I'm still considering that option since I will only have one chase this year.

Teeeeemmmm at Bajaboundmoto.com would be the best IMO. I believe a 100% finish rate or really close
