UTVUnderground and Horsepower Adventures announced today, that they have teamed up to bring you an exciting new, approachable off-road event series in Baja, Mexico, “The Legends Rally”. The events are designed to let participants explore the stunning beauty of Baja, while enjoying gourmet food and drink prepared by local chefs and craft spirit experts. The events will be led by off-road legends including Larry Ragland, Walker Evans, Ivan Stewart and Larry Roeseler who will share their incredible experiences in off-road racing with participants.
Each of the four planned UTV rally events per year will feature a unique route and offer a truly authentic culinary off-road experience and scenery that can only be found in Baja. Participants will stay at the famed Horsepower Ranch, nestled in a quiet valley outside of Ensenada, and experience a full day of riding that includes a gourmet outdoor lunch in a private location, prepared by local chefs.
“Our goal with this series is to preserve, celebrate and share the culture of off-roading. The Legends Rally format is designed to introduce new people to our culture in a fun, exciting and approachable way. UTVs offer the perfect platform to explore Baja and our group will provide a fun, safe environment to experience something special with friends, family and colleagues,” stated Mad Media CEO, Matt Martelli.
The Legends Rally launches its inaugural event September 23rd-25th at Horsepower Ranch, and will be led by off-road legend Larry Ragland. Michelin Star Chef Drew Deckman, who is internationally known for his “slow food” philosophy and using locally sourced produce and meat, will create the menu prepared by associate chef, Claudette Wilkins. Local winemaker Aldo Santini Jr., who is an expert on the local wine, beer, tequila, and mezcal in the region, will provide tastings to pair with Deckman’s dining experience.
“The beauty of Southern Baja is really unparalleled in North America, and there’s no better way to experience it than in a UTV with friends and family,” stated Joey DiGiovanni, CEO and founder of UTVUnderground. “Once you get off the main roads you really get to see Baja’s majestic beaches, mountains, and forests, and of course the people and the food are spectacular!”
Participants of the three day adventure will travel in on Friday afternoon, ride all day Saturday and head home on Sunday, so even the busiest professional can fit this bite sized taste of Baja into their schedule. The event is designed for UTV owners to bring their own vehicles but a limited amount of fully prepared rentals are available from Horsepower Adventures with hassle-free trail support. Guides will meet participants at the American border to ensure a smooth, hassle-free crossing in to Mexico and escort to Horsepower Ranch.
“We are thrilled to partner with UTVUnderground for The Legends Rally!" stated Todd Clement, President and Co-Founder of Horsepower Adventures. "We’ve been missing an entry point for new people to come learn about the off-road culture in Baja for quite some time. We’re really looking forward to sharing the stunning beauty and food of Baja."
