Menzies Motorsport 2015 Baja 500

Posted by Redbull Action on , under , , , |

The 47th annual SCORE Baja 500 took place in Ensenada on Saturday June 6th, 2015. The weather was picturesque at the start in downtown Ensenada with temperatures reaching 75 degrees. Qualifying took place on Thursday before the race outside of Ensenada.
The course was a short 5-mile track that contained multiple types of terrain to keep the best off road drivers on their toes. Upon finishing his qualifying lap, Menzies found himself in third. After the remaining drivers took to the course Bryce dropped a few spots to start the five hundred mile course in sixth position.
Menzies took off from the start line at 10:06am on Saturday and quickly passed 3 trucks to get himself into third place physically. On corrected time, Bryce was right there for the lead. Menzies charged through the pine forest which is mostly single track, sitting just outside the dust of Luke McMillin.
Menzies continued to stay in contention for the lead until they began to lose water to the motor. They added water at a remote pit but this did not fix the issue, just put a band-aid on it. At race mile 340, Menzies jumped on the radio to relay to the team that the motor had quit running.

Posted by Redbull Action on , under , , |

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Tony Cairoli settled his career eighth world motocross title. At the Goias Motocross Grand Prix in Brazil Tony Cairoli crossed the line in fifth place in the opening race to give him an unbeatable lead in the championship points of 89 with just 75 up for grabs in the three races that remained. Despite racing with a painful eye injury picked up in Saturday’s qualifying, Cairoli, a Red Bull sponsored athlete, rode his KTM 350 SX-F to a 4-3 result on Sunday for his eventual overall third.
Cairoli said it was amazing to have taken his eighth title. “When you are a kid you wish for such a thing but you never think you can do it,” he said. “Its hard work but it gives you back many good things. I managed to finish on the podium in all but three races and that was good to achieve points for the season.
