Tuesday, November 13, 2007

Here is a small photo group of the baja 1000 on Nov. 13, 2007.  It was a fast pace preparation organized by chris blais and his remarkable wife, Patty.  I flew in the helicopter with Dr. Lin Weaver spotting the riders and assisting for safety. After 1300 grueling miles a podium finish for 3rd overall after 2 flat tires, a night crash injury of Quinn Cody. 

The KTM 690 Baja, is a very impressive maching. For more detail photos of the KTM race machine go to the Baja 500 web page photos or clicking the bike photo below.

Ensenada, Baja California – KTM’s Baja Team earned an impressive third place podium finish at the 40th Anniversary of the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.

The KTM Baja Team included riders: David Pearson, Cyril Despres, Shane Esposito, and Quinn Cody.  The team raced aboard the new KTM 690 Baja bike.  The bike was first seen at its test run during the Baja 500 event earlier this year.  The Baja 1000 event served as the first race effort for the KTM Baja 690 bike which has proved to be a durable high-performance race machine.
