11-4-08 // The Baja Epic Is On!

Squirrel and Brice, the two newest members of Bike magazine’s editorial staff headed south of the border this morning, with the Sh*tbike in tow. Call it a trial by fire if you will, but they are headed for the first-annual Baja Epic stage race—a four-day, 300-mile race across Mexico's Baja Peninsula. The primary focus of the event will be rugged Baja terrain—ranging from beach to desert to high-alpine forests. The race begins tomorrow and we are expecting to have daily blog updates as the event plays out. Hasta manana amigos!
