In 1994, on a lonely dusty highway outside of Bahia de Los Angeles, the Smith Family was traveling north after an exciting Baja adventure over spring break. Talking out loud, Malcolm mused about how cool it would be to show friends the incredible raw beauty of Baja. A few months later Malcolm and Joyce invited some 50 "friends". The first dirt bike ride was born with 30 riders that accepted the challenge.
The following year, the Smith Family established a non profit foundation to give back to Baja. Today, the ride through the Malcolm Smith Motorsports Foundation provides the funding for approximately 18 University and medical students from El Oasis Orphanage in Valle Trinidad.
Fast forward to 2002, Malcolm allows Alexander (his son and 17 years old) to participate in his first Baja ride. Alexander was hooked and has never looked back. In 2011, Alexander took over the ride from his father and is responsible for all things Malcolm Smith Adventures.
You may have heard of this Malcolm guy. He won the first-ever Baja 1000, then went on to win another 10. Malcolm is a true Baja Pioneer, having explored Baja since he was a young teen in the early 1950s with his adventurous parents. Racing and riding in Baja, Malcolm has more miles Baja than most can imagine.
