“Desert Assassins” Make it to Casa Dorada

 

There’s nothing more dangerously thrilling than Baja off-road racing. With events such as the legendary Baja 1000 and other newer competitions, our desert terrain has long become the holy grail of off-road adventures.

 

One of the most exciting events, launched in 2006, is Rip to the Tip, where 30 riders compete for 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. Steele and Larry Badgwell, with Steele’s “Desert Assassins” race team, host the event and lay out terrain and challenges as vast as the Baja itself. From sand washes, beaches, mountains and cactus filled single track, the bikes and their riders will have to battle all of the elements to ride into Cabo San Lucas and realize their goal of “ripping” to Land’s End.

 

This year Cameron Steele, who in addition to being a world-class off-road racer is also a TV commentator and free-style motocross and wave rider, ripped down the Baja with his crew to end the race at Casa Dorada Los Cabos! 

 

After making their way from San Clemente, California to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Steele, his family and friends chilled with cocktails by our brand new pool—a well-deserved treat! It was great hosting them again at our Cabo beachfront resort and hearing the tales of 30 years of riding experience topped with 40 broken bones. As Steele himself put it it’s “living the dream”.

 

Thank you for choosing Casa Dorada as the grand finale for this exciting race and we are looking forward to having you back next year!
