Baja Adventure Ride: ‘Rip to the Tip’
For the 5th year, the Monster Energy Rip to the Tip off-road motorcycle ride, presented by Lucas Oil, takes on the Baja with 29 enduro riders looking to try and attain the ultimate goal of the "Full Pull."
The Full Pull requires riders to achieve every mile of the plotted trail, as led by Rip founder Cameron Steele, who is a second generation Baja racer and winner of the Baja 1000.
The Rip to the Tip is an off-road motorcycle ride from the California side of the Tecate boarder to Cabo San Lucas. Steele announced at the riders meeting that they will cover an estimated 1400+ miles of terrain over the next 8 days.
From sand washes, beaches, mountains and cactus filled single track, the bikes and their riders will have to battle all of the Baja elements to ride into Cabo San Lucas and realize their goal of "ripping" to Lands End.
Johnny Campbell surprised the 2010 Rip to the Tip crew. Joining them on day one of what will undoubtedly be another epic Baja journey!
