2009-2013 Baja 500 was almost exactly the same course looking back at the course maps. Maybe they'll try something like 2015 and run us down La Rumorosa to get everyone in and out of the heat right away. With the 6AM start for bikes I still feel like they wont even be running us down in the belly of the beast though.
My only Baja experience is mostly San Felipe so I'm excited if its going to be all pacific side.

I've been watching a youtube channel named MOJAVE TRAVELER and he has all the old televised races from across the states and Baja. Really cool to see the history and its all available at your fingertips.

Doubt you will see La Rumerosa at a race anytime soon. Locals up there got angry at some people during the NORRA race a couple of years ago. SCORE quickly re routed the next race they had going through there. Not everyone in Baja is happy to see us race down there.

I’ve been hoping that our prerunning will lead us up to the stream near Mike’s but with the lack of rainfall I'm doubtful it’s in great condition. Still bringing my rod.

Is there usually some trout in there?

Can anyone besides VP get us X85 down in Ensenada and coordinate a bulk drop off at the BFG pit. 3 drums.
