CHRISTOPHER BLACKMER - COLLEGE 16+
Christopher Blackmer has been a regular contender at the Baja Brawl throughout the last couple of years, often showing up in his home state with quite a bit of confidence and speed throughout the Labor Day Weekend event. The Yamaha rider ended up coming away with a championship last year in the Schoolboy 2 (12-17) B/C class and he was hoping to keep up the same momentum this year at Baja Acres. Blackmer has since moved up to the A class, therefore contesting College (16+), 250 Pro Sport, and the 2-Stroke Open class this year. The Michigan native was incredibly consistent throughout the long weekend of racing action, finishing every single moto that he raced on the podium. Blackmer started the weekend off strong with three moto wins out of three classes, dominating early proceedings as he put his name in the conversation for a couple of number one plates. In the College (16+) class, the rider out of Michigan was the fastest and most consistent in the three moto format, compiling 1-1-3 moto scores in order to take the overall victory. He set himself up for another number one plate in the 250 Pro Sport class after the moto one win, but a 5th place in moto two was only good enough for a 3rd place overall. Nonetheless, Blackmer rebounded in the 2-Stroke Open class as the Yamaha rider put together 1-2 moto scores in order to snag another number one plate, bringing his total 2020 Baja Brawl title tally to two by the end of the festive weekend.
