Marcum's Motorsports and Cannondale Come Up Big At Baja 1000!

(L-R) Terry Marcum of Marcum's Motorsports Inc, Greg Melby, Kenny Gaines, Scott Johnson and Zach Taylor, after winning the Sportsmen ATV class at the Baja 1000 aboard a Cannondale Moto 440.Cannondale dealer Terry Marcum of Marcum's Motorsports Inc. in Palatka, Florida headed up the winning team in the Sportsmen ATV class this past weekend at the 35th running of the Baja 1000. The race is a legendary test of man and machine that takes place each year in Mexico. This year's event drew over 230 entries from 30 U.S. states and ten countries competing in classes for off-road trucks, buggies, motorcycles and ATVs.

The Cannondale Moto 440 that Terry and the team piloted to victory, and their Baja 1000 trophy. In a brutal race where 70% of the entrants DNF'd, the Moto 440 completed the 1,017 miles without so much as a hiccup.Racing at speeds of over 90 mph on a Cannondale Moto 440, Terry and his teammates completed the brutal 1,017 miles from Ensenada to La Paz in 27 hours, two minutes. In fact, their time on the Moto 440 was good enough to put them in fifth place in the Pro class! The team's success is especially dramatic in light of the fact that they were racing a largely stock Moto 440 against highly-modified machines backed by mega-dollar race support. Terry's team/support crew consisted of himself, Greg Melby, Kenny Gaines, Scott Johnson and Zach Taylor. Congrats to Terry and the crew on an amazing performance!
