For one night only exclusive to Luna Leederville, join us from 7:00pm for The Desert Said Dance. This is the story of four men whose passion come before any paycheck. Each with motivations of their own. A motley crew united by motorcycle, with the common goal of proving to themselves and the world that they are alive and that the dance must go on. For those already in the know, it's a chance to connect with the subtleties of performance and the art of the machine. For the uninitiated, it is a breathtaking introduction to the spectacle and sublime wonder that is the Baja 1000, and the men who endure enormous hardship in a landscape like no other.
Anyone can enter the Baja 1000, but not everyone finishes it. Some aren’t tough enough. Some don’t have bikes that are tough enough. And some make mistakes that take them out of the race. Sometimes, tragically, forever. This is a place where dreams go to die. Grand visions and hopes, materialized, but rarely sustained. The desert has this mysterious allure, there is freedom, solitude, and opportunity. The desert is the unforgiving canvas of life, and this is a story about the art of racing with it and against it.
For over 50 years, this one-of-a-kind event has been a magnet to those brave and foolish enough to face one of the most challenging racecourses in the world. The Baja 1000 is a race like no other. It is the longest non-stop, point to point, offroad race in the world. Anyone can enter the Baja 1000, but not everyone will finish it. Some aren’t tough enough. Some don’t have bikes that are tough enough. And some make mistakes that take them out of the race. Sometimes, tragically, forever.
