Irvine, Calif.  – Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Casey Currie saddled up his KX™450F this morning and ventured across the U.S. border into Tecate, Mexico to begin the 1,400-mile, eight-day adventure to the tip of the Baja peninsula. The Desert Assassin’s Rip to the Tip, which debuted in 2006, was created by Cameron Steele and Larry Badgwell who were originally looking to share their love of Baja with their closest riding buddies. They recruited 12 of their friends, known as the Dirty Dozen, and embarked on the challenging adventure from the U.S. border-town of Tecate, Calif., through the length of the Baja peninsula, finishing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  Since its inception, the event has proven a success and has grown in notoriety over the past five years. This year’s event will host more than 40 riders, including Currie, who will spend over a week riding through blazing-hot desert, treacherous single-track mountain trails, sand washes, dunes, beaches, boulders, canyons, and steep grades in hopes to make the full-pull, all the way to Cabo San Lucas.
