    Default For my jet boat brothers: Rip to the Tip on Fuel TV tonight

    I know I haven't been very vocal on the site lately or at NJBA events, but if you're interested ... you can check out what I've been up to for the past year or so by tuning into Fuel TV tonight:

    (I know, I know ... the thread isn't all about a jet boat ... but I'm posting it here for my jet boat friends of 10-15+ years in the jet boat section, forgive me)

    "The 2010 Monster Energy Rip to the Tip presented by Lucas Oil premieres in prime time on FUEL TV at 5 and 8pm PST on August 18th.

    The Rip to the Tip dirt bike adventure through Baja has completed it’s 5th year and is produced by the Desert Assassins who have a long history of taking on the Baja with bikes and cars. For 2010 29 riders crossed the US/Mexico border in a freezing rain as they started their 1376 mile moto journey that would last 8 days. The idea is to earn the “Full Pull” where riders roost every mile of the route laid out for them.

    For 2010 the Monster Energy Rip to the Tip presented by Lucas Oil visited epic locations along the Baja Peninsula like The Pine Forest, Horsepower Ranch, El Rosario, Catavinia, San Ignacio, Scorpion Bay and Cabo San Lucas with the boys even making time to freestyle in the sand dunes and jump out of a helicopter for a surf session. The Rip brothers do it in full Baja style which is why they live this epic journey.

    Tune in to see how many riders completed the entire challenge of Baja where crashes, dehydration and outright chaos can add to mechanical and mental woes making achieving every mile a steep task. Meet the likes of FMX superstar Jeff “OX” Kargola, off road icons Cameron Steele & Casey Currie, long time drag boat racer Brian "Scrambler" Busby and 11-Time Baja 1000 champion Johnny Campbell along with the entire group of adventurers looking to tame the Baja.

    Tune into Fuel TV's Insane Cinema - Rip to the Tip to watch this bunch of bunch of friends band together to concur some of the worlds toughest terrain. "

    More chance of coming across carcases in the desert vs. the boat races. Should probably keep the buzzard name. I will be recording at 5:00 on direct tv

    It's been a blast riding& spending time in Mexico, so much media hype that isn't true about Baja. I feel completely safe down there and it's so friggin cheap to take a weekend trip. I'm surprised if I spend $100 for hotel/food/fuel for 3 days.

    Damn Busby! If it wasn't for you crashing, You wouldn't have made the cut for air time. lol. Looks like a rough going. That is rad. Basically, The way I see mexico is the more desolate the area is the safer you are.

    We all know I can cut lights ...now cutting it for air time? I think even with my accidents, I did ok ... look closely and you'll see a lot of other riding by me that was more then just crashing

    Good riding doesn't make for good TV ... epic crashing will get you the face time. Just sayin'
