Rick Hatswell to challenge the Baja Rally 2019 for his 4th time
The Baja Rally starts again on September 30th at the San Nicolas hotel in Ensenada Mexico for another exciting Rally Raid. This full road-book navigation rally will challenge the racers with no GPS points to follow, only a compass heading and odometer. The race covers 5 stages on the Baja peninsula for some of the most breathtaking scenery. From desert cacti to the Sea of Cortez at San Felipe there are some tough stages to complete before returning on October 5th to the finish line back at the San Nicolas hotel pool for the awards ceremony.
Rick has competed here 3 times in the past with many successful days. In 2015 he led the rally for a short time before being overtaken by some of the top riders in the world. In 2016 Rick placed 5th overall on the bikes at the Sonora rally on the other side of the Sea of Cortez in the huge dunes of the Sonora desert.
For 2019 Rick is looking for a strong finish again with his new Rally bike, a 2018 KTM 500 EXCf outfitted with the latest rally gear from MotoMinded and upgraded suspension from Konflict Motorsports. It will be another exciting event.
