Team Kriega Racing Update
IRVINE, CA. (June 7, 2010) -Team Kriega earns a respectable 2nd place in class 40 at the 42nd annual running of the Tecate SCORE Baja 500. The race course was unbelievably brutal but our freshly prepared Honda CRF450X, detailed race plan and dedicated chase teams were the key to our successful finish.
“I am really proud of our riders and chase teams. This feels like a victory for our new team and was only possible because of our sponsors, supporters and good friends. I would like to thank each and everyone that supported our dream” -Todd Corbitt
To elaborate more on our 4 rider race strategy we had Henrik AKA “H” take the bike off the line and handed it off to Collin before the first wash. Collin battled exiting Ensenada and ran to RM95 where Eric took on the dreaded eastern section. Eric made it back to RM222 after physically and mentally hitting the wall and handed it off to Collin to rip the Mike’s loop to RM250. “H” took it all the way across the peninsula and through the new southern section then north to RM 333. TC then jumped on the bike and brought it in to RM402 where most of the team and chase crews were at the Baja Pits to push him to the finish line. Big thanks to Mark Hendrickson for the extra push, sorry about the roost guys.
With Team Kriega’s 2nd place finish this weekend we should be sitting 2nd in championship points. The next race is the the Baja 1000 which is a 1000+ mile Ensenada to La Paz Peninsula Run where anything can and usually does happen.
