We will be posting full galleries each day (depending on the internet situation) of our adventure thru Baja following the Mexican 1000, so far we made it to Bay of LA, NORRA made a great job putting a "Bivouac-Dakar-style" camp for all racers and teams with places for food, shower and even a media room for us!

It seems today's track was a little bit more challenging than expected, almost 500 miles full of holes, silt beds and fast rally roads, we saw guys like Robby Gordon battling with some of the "slow guys" at the end of the race, also Boyd Jaynes told us that this day has been the longest day ever in his Bronco, "more than 12 hours sitting in the bronco but we made it thru and now I need a beer" he said at the finish line.

Start line, Santo Tomás, Colonet, Rosario and Cataviña were our today's photo spots, we played safe to get as much as we could, the stages tomorrow will make the race a very tricky to follow and shoot, but we will figure it out.

Probably one of the worse days of the Mexican 1000, the fire of the Truggy and few more other roll overs made of this stage a really bad day for some teams. For us wasn't a very good day either, our spots where really weak and we broke our exhaust in our truck, but whatever the problems we are having a blast shooting this event, for sure one of our favorites here at RDC
