It blows my mind after all that BFG does for these races and our sport that not everybody supports them. I mean read Judy Smith's article, especially the part about the guys climbing the mountain so that they could get better range for BFG Rely. Name one other company that supports our sport as heavily as they do.

What kind of tires do you run?

As long as they support us I will continue to support them....

Syko,

Just so you know, I will only buy BFG's for my truck and 4 seater. Any company goes out of there way like BFG does, the least I could do is buy there tires. Shoot, I've got a buddy of mine that races on Goodyears and he offered me a set for free and I said no thanks. BFGoodrich is the only tire for me, knida like "The offical tire of Racers Only".....Hehehehhee.

Thats an interesting loop around the Mike`s Sky Ranch/Valle De Trinidad. Has anyone been around that trail. I remember the road from Valle De Trinidad up to mikes but it seems a little different. I am not taliking about the turnoff from hiway 3.

The road from Mike's to the observatory jeep road is the same, but at the second T he's going west on a rocky ranch road used by dirt bikers. This is all Meling family property. I hear he had to do some grading for the loop north of El Coyote ranch. The next loop after that (before you head down to Tepi) is a very old race course (70's?) that is used by dirt bikes as well. The "deep dip" at RM 192 is a favorite. "Narrow" isn't the word for it. Is he also using Casey's Baja Mex 300 course from Llano Colorado to Johnson Ranch?

With the "new" 40 miles, looks like some great new stuff.

From the map, it seems that Sal is using some of Casey's course, those sections were really fun sections.

Did anyone else notice the milage error at the left turn at the power station in Vallle De Trinadad? The map says "Rm. 249.6" the course notes say "224.6" What do you guys think?

It should be 224. The map that BFG posted on their site correctly shows it; somehow Score did not pick up the error with the map they used.
