In one of the early Score Baja Interncaional (500) races in June that went over the summit to the desert... a bike racer died of exposure when he got lost. With GPS trackers and hopefully communicators (inReach, Spot, sat phone), the odds are reduced... but it still could be 110°!

It will be interesting to see how many teams use starLink for communications and if SCORE brings checkpoint communications into this century!

Does it look like the race will cross Mano Summit?

I suspect the same. Do you thin there is another crossing thereabouts?

Mano is the first, south from Rumorosa... then the 'summit' (Portezuelo de Jamau), followed by the newer ones just south of that we discussed after the Pole Line Road Trip of 2015.
