The Baja TT Dehesa Extremadura (Spain) is a new event included in the 2023 FIM Bajas World Cup as the third round of the season. After two events in the Middle East deserts, 70 riders will be present and will attack challenging European tracks.

Super Woman?
Mirjam Pol is one of the 20 riders who are eligible to take part in the FIM Bajas World Cup (16 motorcycles and four quads).
The organisation recently presented her enthusiastically in the media: 'Super Woman Mirjam Pol - who was the first woman to stand on the podium in Qatar last month - will be hoping to challenge both in the overall rankings and in her Women's category'.
So the bar is set high for the Dutchwoman. The upcoming days will show whether she can fulfil her role as favourite or whether she will have to acknowledge the merits of her competitors from Spain and Kuwait.

The schedule of the Baja TT Dehesa Extremadura 2023
After passing administrative and technical checks on April 14th, riders will start the race with a 5.9km Prologue in Badajoz, in the region of El Pico, and then regroup across the border in Portugal at the town of Elvas.
