Monster Energy: Ballistic BJ Baldwin Recoil 2 - Unleashed in Ensenada, Mexico


What better place than the city streets of Ensenada Mexico, the home of the Baja 1000, to set the stage for the sequel to Ballistic BJ Baldwin's viral hit Recoil. This short film by Monster Energy follows BJ and his 800hp Trophy Truck as he tears through this seaside Mexican city, ripping over every drop and jump the town has to offer in an attempt to win a bet set by his friend, and international playboy Dan Bilzerian. Will he win? What will he lose?

Watch RECOIL 1 here.

Filmed by Logan and Sons.

 Rad. I was going to ask wtf this has to do with mountain biking but I just remembered the girl in red rides mountain bikes & posted this to her instagram. instagram.com/p/tDUVRdLMll

So there you go PB. Made the connection for ya.

 Holly shit it´s true. How did you find that?
  • + 126
 I have seen her locally a few times at the bike park and ended up following her on IG one way or another. She reposted that IG video this morning & I remembered seeing it while I was doing my morning ritual of taking a shit & browsing IG. In fact, I watched the BJ Baldwin video during the same poo.

So, Ya, You asked.

 Ha, what a crazy coincidence. That girl with the instagram account crashed into me a week and a half ago at Summit.

I was at the fork between Westridge and Party Wave and she came out of nowhere, and smacked right into me. Banged her shin/ankle pretty good, too.

In my mind she was chasing me down, intent on learning all about me and my sweet bicycle. Maybe even ask for a private riding lesson. But no... after I made sure she was fine she hobbled away, hopped back on her bike and rode off. Like a crazy hot unicorn...

Easily the hottest girl I've seen on any mountain bike... period. Super cute accent too...

 Amazing driving, 30" of suspension travel, bypass shocks, and a beautiful mountain biking girl in a red bikini for the win

 Monster has silly funds when it comes to making YouTube shorts. I mean they closed the Brooklyn bridge for Ken Block!
  • + 2
 @motoracer31 just remembering you of gymkhana five at San Francisco
  • + 5
 They close the brooklyn bridge for me too, every night going east bound btw 10-4 a.m.

 The ultimate shuttle truck
  • + 3
 No road necessary
  • + 6
 I'd take one for the team and just drive shuttle all day. Ya know, for my crew
  • + 2
 I wouldn't even ride MTB's if I had one of those trucks
  • + 34
 except, when I ride I also hear. "shit shit shit shit shit!!! " every once in a while......
  • + 8
 dont forget the random "aargh"...

 Haha, I like the disclaimer/warning on the caption. It's okay PinkBike, we like badass truck videos from time to time too!
  • + 3
 Haha cuz they know somebody on here is gona say something along the lines of "i thought this was a mountain bike website?"
  • + 28
 Your move Ken Block.

 u kmow it!!

 Pits

 The amount of fuel used in this video is two times the average income of anyone in that Mexican town. Yay First Word!
  • + 14
 If I put a 2" lift and some 31" tires on my Tacoma I will be able to do that too...right??
  • - 1
 Screw the lift, spend the money on a long travel kit and then yes, you too will be able to do this.
  • + 14
 says every bro at pismo....

 "Screw the lift, spend the money on a long travel kit and then yes, you too will be able to do this."

--and about another 650hp, and a tube frame, and bead locks, and a spool in the rear, aaaannndd.....you get the idea.
  • + 1
 And a $7-8,000 rear axle! Can't forget that Tubeworks 11" Big Grin
  • + 14
 dat suspension. water blow at the end was awesome too
  • + 14
 Jumping over chicks in bikinis to sand explosion was so sick. I'd like to see seminuk pull that at crankworx next year
  • + 5
 Baldwin with his off-roader on the crankworx track, that would be mental
  • + 11
 That's EXACTLY like my commute to work, only with more girls, a better car and it doesn't end up with 7 and a half hours of shit after it. It's exactly like my drive, but fuck all like it

 @BENGA

I'm sure there's other websites for political opinions. Thanks for the offer though.
  • + 12
 I was wondering when urban riding/stunting would come to 4x4s. Great driving and awesome video.
  • + 5
 Yeah, amazing how the suspension eats up those square bumps and drops. I would truly give a kidney for that ride
  • + 2
 that's one badass Chevy...killer vid !!!...
  • + 6
 Sorry bro, gonna take a lot more than a kidney. That'll only get you $30k which leaves you a long ways off of what that truck is worth. Going to have to find somebody who invests in souls for that one....@m9er
  • + 3
 Dream killer^
  • + 1
 hate to be that guy, but trophy trucks are just rear wheel drive, not 4x4
  • + 1
 Some TT's are 4wd. Herbst Truggy is probably the best known example.
  • + 11
 Dude got arrested when filming this vid, ended up in a Mexican jail. Dan Bilzerian came in a chopper full of bikini models to get him out of there.
  • + 12
 What? No outtakes where he cruises through a living room or two?
  • + 7
 Anybody else want to hear Claudio doing his commentary on the same run?

"Ok and now we take the final Huck to flat over the pretty ladies and WOW!! Oh my god, I think will need a beer and a quiet 5 mins alone after experiencing THOSE braking BUMPS!
  • + 10
 See!! Urban freeride with tons of suspension is the best thing ever. Stop calling it old school!

 Here's my link between this video and mtn biking. My background was in desert racing fabrication/racing, but a move to the pacific northwest put that adventure to a complete stop. I keep telling people that riding Whistler on a DH bike over chunky, rough trails is the closest I can get to that.
  • + 1
 Bummer bro. Who'd you work for?
  • + 8
 trophy trucks and girls in bikinis, i like it!
  • + 9
 Super badass!
  • + 3
 A wonderful video with an amazing sport. If I didn't have my family, I love them so, I would still pursue racing in the Baja. I used to race in minor classes and love me the Trophy Trucks. Way more fun than normal driving. Thankfully, my biking help to ease the urge to rally race again. Else, I would be broke, again.
  • + 6
 Way cooler than anything Ken Block has ever done. Mad respect for Baldwin and his skills behind the wheel!
  • + 7
 I live in Ensenada.. and this was EPIC.
  • + 2
 I used to go down there all the time. Helped pit a couple 1000s and used to go ride the dunes at cantamar. Its too bad I would never bring my toys across that border ever again. Too risky these days, have some good times down there...
  • + 1
 Ensenada is so calm, buddy, the big problems in Mexico are in the center of the country but the TV say other things.
  • + 4
 VIVA ENSENADA !!!!!!!!!
Beautyful and peaceful place full of good people and some of the best downhillers in the country.
Do you remember pistol Pete Loncarevich??? he came down to race many years ago and our kids beat him.

Saludos Ensenada.
  • + 1
 Ensenada is fine, problem for me is crossing the border with anything of value is a risk. Aside from the drug trade violence, there are too many hungry people there. I'm a white boy, my girlfriend of many years is from Mazatlan and I have been to many parts of Mexico many times.

 Pistol Pete rides DH?? Badass!

 I rarely get caught up in the whole motor head mentality, but I'm a convert at this point. The power and control of the car and driver made me feel special to be human being!

 Welcome! It's a great community, with even greater machines! Smile

 This has to be the raddest video I've ever seen. God bless you BJ Baldwin. Thank you for making this happen. I so want a street legal trophy truck.

 Hold the phone! When did DVO start making off road suspension?
  • + 4
 This is how i drive to school Wink
  • + 3
 What kind of balls is he running? Can I get those as an after market upgrade?
  • + 2
 That suspension is amazing! I want my bike to sit in the corners like this car. The landings looked soooo smooth! Props to the guys that tweaks these machines

 Effing driving skills!!! You're the man!!!

 I thought this was possible only in GTA.
  • + 3
 i want that. all of that.
  • + 2
 Makes me wanna move to mexico! Is there anywhere in north america you could something like this in?
  • + 2
 If you're in eastern Canada, Silver Lake, Michigan. If you're west, well, pick your poison: Glamis, Pismo, Ocotillo Wells, many I'm sure I'm forgetting or don't even know about yet. Really anywhere in the US southwest. Living where I do, with crap for offroading, Silver Lake is near and dear to my heart.

Ooh, almost forgot about Oregon Dunes! That's farther north for you.
  • + 2
 Nyland cali is nice if glamis is too populated for your taste. I usually head thereabouts. Also I just have to point it out cause I'm a douche that way but Mexico is still considered part of North America... :p

 Nobody? allrigt, my turn:
'MURICAAA !!!

 That was definitely ENDURO and every drug dealer in that town just wrote their letter to SANTA! Dear Santa, I want a truck just like that!

  • + 1

 I have to admit, 1:11 was my favorite part!

 Funded by selling green poison in a can. At least poisoning millions of people brought something good to the world. The good being this video.
