Hilde is holding down the fort at MotoUSA's Southern Oregon HQ. With world-class dirt bike and ATV trails just minutes away, the hardest part is getting him to focus on the keyboard. Two wheels or four, it doesn't matter to our Off-Road Editor so long as it goes like hell in the dirt.

The crew at Baja Bound is trying something new this time around with a slew of relatively unknown and gnarly trails for riders to experience July 9-12 on the 2009 Baja Beach Bash. Tim Morton hooked up with Desert Assassins’ Cameron Steele and JCR Honda’s Johnny Campbell, two of Baja’s most well-known characters, and decided to expand their typical south-of-the-border tours and provide a more unique experience of Baja, California. The tour features less coddling by the guides and more affordability.

Not only are the organizers trying to spread the word about the “real” Baja, but they also want to support the people of the community and also the racers who enjoy it. The Rancho Santa Marta orphanage will receive a portion of the money raised as wells as Luis Garcia who was injured in a head-on crash during the 2009 Baja 500. Garcia has reportedly endured seven surgeries and, of course, anything helps for our injured brethren.

Check out the 2009 Baja Beach Bash video for a preview of what participants can expect. We’ve got our resident SoCal desert expert, Chilly White, on the list. Watch for a report on the event once everyone gets back across the border.
