Now here is something you don’t see everyday, a MotoGP rider getting ready to race the 2013 Baja 1000. You heard it right, Colin Edwards is in Baja as we speak, prepping for the upcoming race.
The timing seems a bit off for prerunning, but I am sure Colin has plenty of schedule conflicts with the remaining GP races, so he has to go when he can.
Maybe this will convince his compatriots to come join in the fun, we could have a MotoGP Baja class. It might be a good chance for the Americans to show their dirt bike skills off. While Colin is not quite at the front of the MotoGP races anymore, he still battles to be the best of the CRT class bikes. Similarly, Nicky Hayden battles for the Ducati class win each race too. We know Nicky has some serious dirt bike background.
Thanks to our reader Curtis for bringing this one to our attention.
