Toby,
I will join the comp. The number one mexican is probably someone I don't know in Baja California. I heard there are a couple really good riders over there, and there are a few good riders in Progreso too. We really don't have much of a high level yet. We probably will in a year, but not now. This is just the first step in starting to get mexicans organized. If you competed you would probably win first place no problem. But it will be a good experience, and we will learn a lot from other riders(Dimitri Maramenides), and just have a lot of fun. Oh, I remembered, the best mexican rider is obviously Mauricio Toscano, we invited him, but he can't come.

I don't think I would win, but wouldn't be the last!
I would love to join and ride with you guys, but as I mentioned before, I can't.
Next year?

Good luck in the event!

Anthar Racca can be one of the best ones and he is only 12 years old!. Locals from Progreso are quite good as well. Let's see who wins.

Buen viento, nos vemos el domingo Andrés, saludos.

Jaime
