Robby-Bell-Off-Road-Baja-500-6-5-13I’ve come to the realization that I am rarely in my life more focused and aware of my current reality than when I’m on a race bike in Baja. In those moments, nothing else exists; it can’t exist. There is too much at stake to allow my mind to wander. Around any corner, blind rise, or cloud of dust awaits an obstacle be it a vehicle, horse, cow, dog, person, rock, or ditch that I need to be prepared for. Failure to be prepared, present in the moment with unabated focus, can lead to unforgiving consequences. Consequences anyone who has ever raced in Baja is very familiar with.

Perhaps that’s part of the draw of the experience.

In the current form of reality we all experience on a daily basis, complete with endless distractions, experiencing a complete focus, an unyielding awareness of the current moment, is quite a novelty. But in Baja it’s a requirement; It demands this of each rider, each team member, chase driver, even spectator. In its own way, it produces an altered state of consciousness, a heightened state rarely experienced these days, and I believe that’s part of what keeps racers and team members flocking south of the border: the novelty of that experience.

THR_baja-500_SCORE-5-28-13Corona, CA – May 28th – With more than a year under their belts working together as a team for THR Motorsports / Monster Energy / Precision Concepts Kawasaki, Robby Bell, Steve Hengeveld and David Pearson know exactly what it takes to win. And as the defending overall motorcycle champions in the 45th Tecate / Monster Energy / SCORE Baja 500, they’ve added a new weapon: Taylor Robert.

The 22-year-old from Arizona may be new to racing in Baja, but he has years of experience in many other arenas. He’s the defending WORCS champion, where he’s had a solid career having won the WORCS Pro 2 championship in 2008. He’s also represented Team USA abroad, earning gold medals at ISDEs in Mexico and Germany. This year, he’s concentrating on EnduroCross both domestically and internationally thanks to the inclusion of Enduro X at X Games in Brazil, Germany, Spain and the U.S. Racing is definitely in his blood.

SCORE-Logo-12-20-11SAN DIEGO — With pre-running on the official race course ongoing since last  Wednesday, SCORE champion racer Steve Hengeveld will be the spotlight guest talking about next week’s 45th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 during Tonight’s airing of Roger Norman’s Dirt LiveHD weekly Internet broadcast Tuesday at 7 p.m. Pacific Time. Airing in High Definition on www.score-international.com, the show will air from its broadcast home at the SCORE International tech shop in San Diego.

Hengeveld, a six-time SCORE season motorcycle point champion who also has eight career motorcycle class wins in the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, is part of the defending champion team in this race. Besides Hengeveld, joining rider of record Robby Bell in this year’s attempt to defend their title will be David Pearson and Taylor Robert as the team rides the No. 4x Monster Energy THR Motorsports Kawasaki KX450F.

Another scheduled guest on tonight’s show is veteran SCORE Trophy Truck racer Gary Williams, a co-driver with Ryan Arciero who teams with Troy Herbst in the No. 91 Monster Energy Terrible Herbst Motorsports Ford F-150.

SCORE-Logo-12-20-11SAN DIEGO — Following Tuesday’s night live drawing for starting positions, Southern California desert racing ace Robby Bell, the defending overall winner, will be the first motorcycle off the starting line in the upcoming 45th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500 desert race. Entries from around the world continue to arrive for Round 2 of the 2013 SCORE Desert Series, to be held May 30-June 2 in Mexico’s Baja California Norte, starting and finishing in Ensenada, the seaside port on the Pacific Ocean, 80 miles south of San Diego.

With SCORE Trophy Trucks and unlimited Class 1 open-wheel desert race cars qualifying for starting positions, Bell is certain of his starting position on, Saturday, June 1. The start draw was broadcast live worldwide during a special edition of Roger Norman’s Dirt Live Internet show.

Robby-Bell-Kawasaki-San-Felipe-3-14-13Once a year the sleepy beach town of San Felipe is awoken by the sounds of chase crews, pre-runner vehicles and race machines tearing around the streets and nearby desert in preparation for the season opener of the SCORE Baja series. The town may be a destination for those seeking relaxation and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the American way of life, but the race itself offers nothing of the sort. The terrain is brutal. The course features more whoops than most racers would care to hit in a lifetime and embedded rocks blending in so well with the dirt that it makes racing feel a bit like a game of Russian roulette. Maintaining focus over such unreadable terrain is of the utmost importance as the slightest mistake could end your race. Couple the mental test with the physicality of the course and the speeds required to compete and it can be argued that the San Felipe 250 is one of the toughest off road races in the world.

Corona, CA – Robby Bell, Steve Hengeveld and David Pearson are ready to carry the momentum of recent wins south of the border next week at the MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250. They’ll split seat time as usual aboard their THR Motorsports / Monster Energy / Precision Concepts Kawasaki KX450F, meticulously prepared by Bob Bell of Precision Concepts, in the first of three SCORE races.

While this will be the first race SCORE has produced under the helm of new owner Roger Norman, the THR trio expects no surprises in the one-loop, 254-mile course that employs a mix of new and old tracks.
