“The everyday man out in the working world does something incredible and against all odds and advice. No one expected him to go through with it, everyone tried to talk him out of it, and NO ONE except Andy expected him to make it this far” -Brennan Dates “Excuse me, which way is the Baja 1000?” is a story about seizing the moment, pushing back the hands of time, and chasing a dream. It’s about an aging working man, an avid motorcycle enthusiast, who finds himself with one more chance at real adventure. With off-road riding skills developed as a teenager but unused for several decades, no desert racing experience, and a general purpose motorcycle suited more for commuting and dual sport rides than off-road racing, Andy throws caution to the wind and reaches for the brass ring – the longest non-stop, point to point, off-road race in the world – The Baja 1000! The story unfolds as the author dives head first into the challenging and dangerous world of off-road motorcycle racing, overcoming obstacle after obstacle along the way, and learning as he goes. With limited skills and a less than competitive motorcycle his chances for success look bleak. But, a stubborn “never say die” attitude and an unquenchable thirst for adventure keeps our unlikely hero in the hunt as he tenaciously pushes forward to realize his dream.
