Mal~lm Smith, winner of this year's Baja 500, proves again why he's called "Master of Baja". Malcolm arrived at EI Arco, the half-way point, to tum the bike over to partner Gunnar Nillson with a time 4 minutes faster than in 1970. Gunnar's riding duties took him through the dark, over terrain that became tougher and tougher, but he still kept up the lead that Malcolm had established earlier in the day. Their 400cc Husky, pulled out of the crate only days earlier, brought them in First Bike and 2nd Overall, being defeated only by a four-wheel monster of over five times their size. Another Husky entry in the 125cc.Cljlss took a Second, in spite of a split gas tank. Bruce Dunford and Lars Eric Johansson deserve credit for a well ridden race, even with the added obstacle in their path to victory. Walch Io~ our ne"" Ljghl""eighl.
