After a 25 hour run from Ensenada to La Paz that was plagued with problems and adversity, Team Moto X Nutrition Pro Caliber came away with the overall ATV victory in the 43rd running of the Baja 1000! The team battled a blown rear shock, losing 1st gear, and crashing off half of their race lights to beat all of Class 24 and most of Class 25. Even a flawless run down the nearly 1100 mile peninsula course is quite a feat in itself, and the team managed to do it in less than 25 hours! The MXN team was able to overcome their issues and ride hard for the win.
The point to point 1000 has a history of challenging racers to really dig down and find out of what they are made. It is well known by any accomplished Baja racer that it is nearly impossible to make it through this race unscathed and it’s how you, your team, and your crew react to the challenges that will get you to the finish line. It’s their combined effort and intense and thorough preparations that get you to the finish first. After leaving last year’s 1000 in 2nd place, the team charged ahead this year hungry for the win and dominated all season long.
Rider of record and Team Manager Brandon Brown explained, “I’ve been trying to instill the mindset into everyone involved with our team to just make good decisions. You’re going to have problems if you come down here and play. The decisions you make in the midst of adversity will make you or break you. Our team made good decisions and as a result of it we won the Baja 1000!”
With this victory, Team Moto X Nutrition Pro Caliber has won the Tecate Score 2010 Class 24 Championship as well as the series overall ATV Championship for the season! They were presented with their awards Saturday after the race.
“Jeremy and I are extremely proud of the job our MotoXNutrition/Pro Caliber team did this year. We punish these guys at our new UHA (Universal Human Athletics) training facility all year leading up to this race, and team leader Brandon Brown would push the team for more. Brandon and I already discussed raising the bar again to prove and ensure our continued success next year,” says fitness trainer, nutrition expert, and title sponsor Christian Chambers.
