Most of off-road spectating is hours of sun and dust. But a helicopter is the harbinger of action; once you hear those rotors it’s only a matter of seconds before you’ll be compelled to crap your pants.
The Baja 1000 course is full of surprises, and even a careful prerun of the course can’t prepare you for every bump on the way. But if you do see a jump, you’ve got to commit and fly far or slow down enough to roll over it gently. Half-assing gets you a face full of dirt.
