Is there really any competition? After Kawasaki dropped out (When was that? Oh, right when Honda and Campbell started winning!) The race has become a Honda promotional ad. Please don't take this as denigrating JC's talent, it's just that the 1000 seems more like a fast trail ride for most competitors, except for the fortunate (Honda) few.

Kawasaki dropped out after a number of close calls (locals boobie trapping the course, federales, etc.) that had people re-thinking Baja racing in the first place. Then Danny Hamel was killed when an off duty police officer went the wrong way on the course and hit him head on. Danny died of internal injuries and Kawasaki hasn't been back.
