Hosehead Racing in Baja



My name is James Hall I work as Technical Project Manager for a software development company.

I got into Desert racing after 1 too many stays in the hospital from racing motocross and jumping Freestyle ramps. I took a 2 years off after I did a compound Tibia and Fibia at the old hungry valley track. (Stepped off the bike 20 ft in the air).
I had a buddy who's older brother had just raced the baja 500 the year before and was looking for a new team mate. I joined and my first race with the team we got 5th place in class 22 and 10th bike overall. Pretty sweet. This last Baja 500 was my 5th I re-partnered up with my Crazy friend Adam Neuwirth , Yes we were the notorious 19x bike. The most penalized vehicle so far with 914 minutes. Lucky for me I only rode on the road from San Matias to Mikes at a mellow pace in 4th gear. my partner however tried to set the land speed record on the Mexican Highways. So he ended up speeding his way to a DNF.

I also have 3 baja 1000's and 1 San Felipe 250.

Look's like I might be trying to solo some races in the future.

Here is some helmet footage from my ride.
