Baja Pordenone ep.2

This weekend i had so much fun racing the Baja of Pordenone, unfortunately the number of competitors was only 16 and to tell you the truth i was expecting many more riders since this was round 1 of the FIM Baja World Cup. The race was organized extremely well, everything worked out perfectly and never had any delays or problems. Both on Saturday and Sunday we performed 2 loops on an 80km special stage which had some extremely fast sections where i hit over 160km/h!! The coolest thing about this Baja was that there was a free application for the Iphone where you could get the live tracking, speeds, and live results!!!! Every race should do this!!!! Furthermore there was a good amount of spectators. Unfortunately at 3km from the end i hit a rock which twisted the sprocket and it ripped my chain so i had to push my bike in the river bed for 3km until the end of the race finishing 7′ overall, 3′ in the Junior class and 1′ in the 600cc class.

Here some shots, thanks to MCH (My friend Marian) for the very nice shot in the river and to the other photographers!
