50 year anniversary of first SCORE run to La Paz. Bikes will get a bigger time gap than past races so the trucks may not catch most of the amateur bikes

They did the same night start in 2013. But the course was much shorter in 2013, so a lot of the bikes finished before the Trophy Trucks.
This year, I expect the Trophy Trucks to catch many of the sportsman and ironman bikes.

my good bro Espo is on the 45x team and looking good, hopefully they can pull out the W. i believe Espo gets on the bike in San Ignacio (45 miles from now).

edit... looks like the 1x tracker was maybe malfunctioning? it's up and going now, about 22 miles behind the 45x.

trackers are taking a shit in Baja Sur for some reason, 45x tracker looks like it's good, 44x and 1x though? do you have any more info on what mile marker 33x is at?

it's 2017 ffs, you'd think they could figure this shit out

Last I saw was from the team on Facebook almost an hour ago at RM 605....physics order at 605 it was 45x, 1x, 44x, 3x, 33x...with big gaps between the bikes.

i just saw there may be a spectator down, Code Red at mile 150? trophy truck incident?

edit... female spectator at mile 151 deceased. tragic news, prayers to those affected.

45x and 1x are about 5 miles apart at mile 850

Any idea who's on the 1x at the moment? Sounds like they made up some serious time.

Dalton Shirey was on 45x last year i believe?

I've heard both hit and not hit. Hard to tell from either video. Sure looked close. I'm sure that podium box is slick with the ocean night air coming in

i heard about an hour ago the 1X was docked 30 minutes.

i've heard a couple different stories about the penalty so i'm not about to say anything until it's official.

*SCORE Update *Moto Class Francisco Arredondo @frany_arredondo and his talented team claimed their third straight victory of the season when apparent winner Samuels was penalized after the race by SCORE race officials for a reckless incident at the finish line ramp. Ian Young was the rider for the last 200 miles of the race. The adjusted finishing time for the 1x team was 21:26:47.

That's the digital track that the GPS data Sytems creates itself from data point to data point. Go look at everyone's Stella History and they'll all look that way.

Lol. Try again. There is no honor in cutting a course, and I highly doubt OX would ever feel like they would need to do that to win
