Off road cheer is the new holiday cheer! After some days off, we’re excited to get started with the last tour of the year! #offroadcheer

Santa came in early for Montoya’s racing team 325x and left them with a championship in class 30 pro moto; in Kyle Tichenor’s (325x rider) words “Baja was cold, challenging, heartbreaking and still a blast!” If that’s not off-road cheer, I don’t know what is!

169x team: Pedro Gonzalez from Venezuela, and brothers Matteo & Tomás De Gavardo from Chile, were able to complete their very first (for the brothers) Baja 1000 and finished 4th in their class. Matteo and Tomás’s father (Carlo De Gavardo 1969-2015), was also a motorcycle racer. He participated in numerous rallies worldwide, including the Dakar Rally, he was the first Chilean motorcyclist to run the Paris-Dakar from beginning to end.

The holidays are upon us but, the holiday cheer isn’t quite here yet. Instead, we have off-road cheer! If that’s a thing. That being said, we do have a Christmas tree, although we considered having one of the KTM bikes with Christmas lights instead.

OK, enough cheer for today! On to the next cheerful adventure! Stay tuned! Cheers!!
