Join the Desert Assassins as they battle through tough single track, roost Baja 1000 courses and do wheelies down the beaches of the magical Baja Peninsula with the goal of reaching Cabo San Lucas. 26 brothers ride 1,368 miles over 8 days where they take on the mental and physical challenges of the vast, desolate Baja and all the conditions she offers up as a test of each riders will.
Rip to Cabo features:
• World Surfing Champion Sunny Garcia
• 11-Time Baja 1000 Champion Johnny Campbell
• Freestyle Motocross Pro Ryan Hagy

• Creator/host of Rip to Cabo Cameron Steele

Grab a seat on the couch and gather the family for an hour of dirt bike fun in the Baja. The Desert Assassins love of the Baja should be evident through this cinematic feat of capturing dirt bike riders as they journey to Lands End. Director Chris Merritt highlights Baja as truly the star on this adventure of a lifetime, as she should be.
The brothers of the R2C remember and pay respects on the trail and in this program to Jeff “OX” Kargola. Jeff was a Baja and Freestyle champion who died after crashing in 2011 south of the border near San Felipe, Baja California. Many from this group were on that fateful ride with Jeff and return for their first Cabo trip since Jeff’s passing.
Host Cameron Steele leads friends old and new, as he and 11-Time Baja 1000 champion Johnny Campbell, share their favorite routes and trails over 8 days of riding. Featured riders include World Surfing Champion Sunny Garcia, Freestyle Motocross professional Ryan Hagy, long distance motorcycle jumping daredevil Trigger Gumm and new SCORE Baja moto champion Colton Udall.
Rip to Cabo is a new ride designed by Cameron Steele and his Desert Assassins off-road race team. He is the creator of additional moto adventures Hell Ride, in it’s 6th year, and the Baja moto competition Master of Baja coming in 2013.
