Canadian Andreas Hessler became the latest big name to enter the 300-mile, four day Baja Epic slated for November 5-8 in Mexico.
Hessler's achievements include two Canadian National titles, three Canadian National Series titles and two Trans Rockies wins. He also organizes the BC Bike Race, a multi-day stage race through British Columbia.
"We are thrilled to have Andreas in and part of the field," said Baja Epic promoters. "He's a great racer who's really shined in these stage races. This should be a very good field for the inaugural event".
