Spradling has raced and finished the Baja 1,000 three times, once as a solo rider and now twice as a team member.
“It is a great adventure that I hope to do again,” said Spradling, who was chosen by the team to run the night and rocky segments of the race. “Our team consisted of Anna Cody, 2008 SCORE Class 20 Champion and the first woman to successfully solo the Baja 1,000 on a motorcycle, Roger Hurd, 1990 Score Class 20 Champion, Robert Laughlin, 2005 SCORE Sportsman Class Winner and 2006 Baja 1000 solo finisher, and myself.”
Running in the Pro Motorcycle Class 20 the team completed the race in 26 hours, 36 minutes and seven seconds.
“Anna partnered with the Michel J. Fox Foundation and Team Fox to raise funds for Parkinson’s disease research because Roger lives his life every day with Parkinson’s but still races motorcycles,” said Spradling.
Spradling owns and operates Highland Cycles at 5068-A North Townsend Avenue in Montrose.
“We still have Baja T-shirts for sale,” Spradling said. “All proceeds from T-shirt sales go to the Michael J. Fox foundation for the support of Parkinson’s research” he added. For more information visit www.score-international.com and www.annacodyracing.com.
