The Baja Rally: Their Biggest Challenge is BAJA!

October 9, 2017, marks the 5th installment of North America’s premiere rally raid, and it’s going to be a doozy. Look out world, the BAJA RALLY is back and ready to rumble! And they’re challenging Baja’s rugged wilderness to a knife fight, naming glory as their prize. The BR team has changed the rules a bit and added velocity to the infamously technical routes. With this reimagined race course, competitors and fans can expect a high-speed, rip-roarin’ good time. Gathering at the San Nicolas Hotel & Casino in Ensenada a humble 44 riders and drivers make up this year’s roster, and the team couldn’t be happier. Throughout the week, racers will really get a feel for the fresh-faced route and have the chance to open up in faster sections – throwing up a cloud of blood, sweat and tears in their wake. The ultimate cocktail for a good time. The motorcyclists are going to have a hell of a challenge on their hands! Rally Pro class is once again filled with too many greats to list. Mexican rally legend Beto Verber is gracing us with his presence in Rally 1 and the ADV Expert class is ripe with fresh meat. XLADV’s Eric Hall and Team Cyclops Adventure Sports’ Wes VanNieuwenhuise both chomping at the bit to show the world “BIGGER is better.” What’s most exciting is the huge increase of entrants in UTV Expo, to include two-time BAJA RALLY Champion, Steve Hengeveld. History in the making, this momentous occasion is one you won’t want to miss!

Join everyone in Baja once again, from your cell, computer or on-track, to charge the desert, battle for glory and stand up to everyone’s greatest adversary, Baja California itself…
