Baja 1000: The Hard Way Down
I've been watching a few Isle of Man videos lately, but this morning, when I saw the video here, it occurred to me that the IOM TT and the Baja 1000 are more similar than different. Sure, you can flatten yourself against a stone wall or a tree in the TT, but down in Baja, in the middle of nowhere, you can clip a rock at 90 mph or ride over a cliff in the pitch dark, and you're just as screwed. And you have to ride flat out, all the time, to win either one.
