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!

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.

Hopefully you will get more ideas... the race is no closer than 30 miles from San Felipe (Hwy. 3) and at the top end of Diablo Dry Lake.

1) At the Hwy 3 crossing, near El Chinero, will have a lot of spectators and the racers have to slow to 37MPG for a close look at them. Lots of crazy spectators are fun to watch as well.
At the north end of L Diablo are two good places.
2 and 3)RM 85,RM225, and VCP 90,RM230. Both have access on a graded road.

A good thing
There will be hydration stations in several locations on the course in the lower desert. It will be hot out there. Know the signs of heat exhaustion. Stop for fluids if needed, don't be a hero's fool. There will be courtesy ARMA electrolytes drinks available at the volunteer stations.
Approximate locations:
RM123 Baja Pits
RM135 SCORE volunteer hydration stop
RM145 BFG pit with hydration and IV services
RM160 Baja Pits
RM175 SCORE volunteer hydration stop
RM180 Baja Pits hydration stop
RM195 SCORE volunteer hydration stop
RM203 Baja Pits

Looks like terrible herbst team mowed down a bunch of spectators. Why do score/racers never learn? They need to slow down when spectators are around and dust obscures visibility. How does score get away with killing a few spectators every year?
