Lyndon Poskitt Adds BAJA RALLY to "Races to Places" Tour

British Sensation Returns to Baja CA


ENSENADA BAJA CA MEXICOBajarallymoto.com announced today that British racer and YouTube sensation Lyndon Poskitt has added the 2015 BAJA RALLY to his list of races on his “Races to Places” web-TV schedule. R2P is a 2 year motorcycle adventure like no other, riding around the world on a Factory Rally bike, competing in rallies on every continent.  It’s not all about the riding and racing though. He shares his entire experience including the cultural aspects of his journey including things some of us will only dream of ever seeing. 

“I raced the BAJA 1000 back in 2007 on a KTM 950 SuperEnduro and spent a few weeks pre-running”, Poskitt explained, “I’ve explored Baja CA extensively, so I know the BAJA RALLY will be a perfect fit for me, offering unique terrain and scenic views to add to my Races to Places program. There’s always more to see and ride and riding road book in Baja will add a very different experience, something I am looking forward to”


Poskitt, an aerospace engineer by trade, completed the Dakar rally in 2013 and built a solid following of fans during his buildup and execution of his successful campaign. He took home a top 10 stage finish and overcame some serious set-backs to finally finish in the top 50, bringing home the medal he had always wanted.  Since completing the world’s most important rally, Poskitt set his sights on a global tour that transcends the thrill of racing, something that has never been attempted before. 

Executive VP Fred Sobke likened Poskitt’s entry to the cultural goals of the BAJA RALLY mission, which is to share and teach Mexican culture to international visitors and spreading the word about Baja CA's treasured landscapes. 

“What Lyndon is doing allows others to live vicariously through his eyes”, explained Sobke, “His videos give viewers the idea that you can live your own dreams on your own terms if you can imagine them well enough”.  Hosting Lyndon's 'Races to Places' program at our event, validates one of our most important objectives to share the beauty of the land and our hosts”.



During Lyndon’s global tour so far he has visited 25 countries, covered 50,000km and raced in 2 international rallies on two different continents to add to his already impressive race resume; and he’s not even half way through!  His youtube webisodes produce several thousand views within days of release, adding to the validity of Poskitt’s organic fan base. Rally is hugely popular in Europe and other parts of the world excluding North America.

Lyndon Poskitt’s entry to the BAJA RALLY is a milestone for the rally-raid event that seeks to gradually grow a sustainable, environmentally friendly rally that is taken seriously as a training ground for longer, more intense rallies. On this note, Lyndon has offered to share his navigation methods and techniques with participants of the rally in ‘An Evening with Lyndon’. For those interested, Lyndon will host a seminar at the San Nicolas Hotel on Sunday Sept 27.
