21a-3The 27th annual San Felipe 250 took place Saturday, March 9th with more entries from various countries in this year than the last few years. The combined team of Quad75Dezert and Los Chakas battled in 4th all day long, but finished the day in 5th after some confusion near the finish. After the stressful pre-race preparations, the team was less than happy with 5th but content with a finish without penalties and is now looking towards the Baja 500 in June.

Riders Juan Sanchez, Angel Sanchez, Jenaro Ibarra, Santos Perez and Brandon Brown were to compete in this year’s 250, however just before he was supposed to leave Brandon was in a training accident that left him with two broken ribs and other injuries. Then, while pre-running, Santos Perez encountered a chase truck coming backwards on the course. In his attempt to avoid the oncoming vehicle Santos crashed and broke his collarbone, just days before the race. It was a rocky start to 2013, but the team did not give up and replacement rider Julio Gomez was able to step in, however without enough time for pre-running. Read More

2012 San Felipe 250 Post-Race Recap

Posted by Q75 admin on Friday Mar 16, 2012 Under 2012, Baja, News, San Felipe 250

Team Quad75Dezert conquers adversity and places 5th at the 44th Annual SCORE San Felipe 250. After a week of pre-running in Mexico and about 100 miles of testing and tuning on the race bike, the team woke early March 10th to race the San Felipe 250. After a solid week the team was feeling good about their sections and the course, however their race would be plagued with problems, the least severe being stray cactus injecting itself into riders, the most severe being a transmission failure that would leave the team struggling for top speed for most of the race.

Quad75Dezert once again is in the desert of Mexico, preparing for the 44th Annual San Felipe 250. This year’s race is 248.64 miles and has an 11 hour time-limit to complete. Motorcycles begin leaving the line at 6:00am Saturday March 10th, in 30-second intervals. Trucks begin leaving the line 4 hours after the last motorcycle has left.

This year’s course has some never-before-used sections as the track will go through 3 new washes. This will add a little to the typical challenges of Baja, and participants riding those sections will need to take extra care during pre-running to make notes and learn the terrain. For Quad75Dezert, most of these sections will be taken on by rider Jorie Williams, who says, “The new sections are fun, but there’s not a lot of room for creativity.” Read More
