There was dust to glory but also tragedy at the 2016 Baja 500

Posted by

The 2016 edition of the Baja 500 desert race is over, and it mixes glory with sadness, as this year, no less than three people lost their lives in this unforgiving race.

The overall Baja 500 winner was a team comprising Colton Udall and Mark Samuals. The Michelin-backed outfit claimed victory aboard Honda machines, rekindling hope in the hearts of the fans who are most certainly dreaming to see one of the House Tokyo riders crossing the finish line of the Dakar Rally soon.

Udall, who is a triple winner in the Baja 500 and Baja 1000 events, and has also numerous podiums in these races, added that this year's competition had the hottest weather since he can remember. It may sound like a cliche, but we've already seen, unfortunately, dehydration causing crashes and fatalities in such competitions.


The 2016 Baja 500 would sadly not end without fatal incidents. Travis Livingstone and Noah Everman, alongside a child, lost their lives in the 2016 Baja 500. Livingstone was involved in a crash and entered cardiac arrest, but the medical team could not save him. Everman was discovered next to his motorcycle by other riders, also dead.

An 8-year-old boy and his mother, both with undisclosed identities, were hit by a truck that tried to avoid some spectators. The truck swerved but hit the two. The child was transported to a nearby hospital but was pronounce dead on arrival. His mother suffered head and leg injuries but is in stable condition.
