Anna Cody Enters The BAJA RALLY



ERENDIRA, BAJA CA, MEXICO-Bajarallymoto.com has announced that female desert racing champion and Baja matriarch Anna Cody will participate in the Inaugural BAJA RALLY de Motos this October 4-6 in Northern Baja CA. Cody, who most recently won the 250 expert class at the Best In The Desert Vegas to Reno race, is best known for her historic solo finish in the 2006 BAJA 1000, the first such finish for any female motorcycle racer. Cody will run the #208 in memory of her dear friend and riding partner Jimmy Stocker.

“There is a deep significance to Anna’s joining us in our first BAJA RALLY”, explains rally creator and director Scotty Breauxman, “Not only is she our only female entrant, but the ironic symbolism between her and the Johnson-Meling women is important to our mission to create an event that educates and immerses our participants and teams into the local history and culture of Baja CA.”

More than 100 ago, “norteamericano” settlers Harry and Ella Johnson strived with their children against all odds as miners and cattle ranchers at San Antonio Del Mar and the foothills and mesas below San Pedro De Martir. They were the forebears of the Meling family name, which is prevalent in the area today. When most all other migrants from the north failed, the Ella Johnson and “Bertie” Johnson-Meling persevered.

“The striking similarity”, Breuaxman continued, “It that like the Johnsons and Melings, Anna Cody has fought hard to endure BAJA in a mostly male dominated arena. Having her with us for this first rally is extremely important to our team and to our hosts of BAJA.”

Part of Cody’s effort to participate in the BAJA RALLY is supported by Geoff Hill of BajaBound Insurance. Hill is an avid video maker who hopes to document Cody’s adventure from the preparation through completion.

The Inaugural BAJA RALLY is the first ever roadbook-navigation based “rally-raid” for motorcycles to be held in BAJA CA and will take place on a series of secret course routes beginning in the historically rich wine country of Santo Tomas and ending in the agricultural center of San Quintin.
