It’s that time of year to head down to San Felipe, Baja California for the 2012 Baja 250. My brother is racing again so I’ll be helping out the team while pre-running and on race day. By ‘helping out,’ I mostly mean sitting out somewhere in the desert in my truck, cooking in the hot sun while waiting for a rider to arrive, fill them up with gas, watch them ride off and their dust fade into the distance, drive to a new location and repeat. Only a week out of Europe, even 10,000 spf sunblock wont help and I’m sure I’ll be
lobster Honda red after a day or two.
I’m not really sure how many photos I’ll take this year. There’s so many other photographers these days and I don’t really have an outlet for race photos so it’s not really worth much effort. I’ll probably focus a bit more on behind the scenes stuff while pre-running and maybe a few sunrises and landscapes while I’m sitting around in the desert. For me it’ll just be more of a fun trip this time around. And there’s lots of cool stuff down there to explore. The race is almost just an excuse for me to go down there.
