With more than 260 km each day, the outcome of the race was uncertain to the very end. Navigation mistakes and broken parts took the toll and only the most persistent finished the race, if they were lucky.

Although short, the Baja Deutschland 2015 can be considered as a marathon. Not only the race was more than 528 km long. But without careful race strategy, clarity and physical preparation it was not possible to successfully finish this event.
