The FIM Bajas World Cup is the premier championship of baja-style rally raid racing, organized by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) since 2012. Along with the main world cup for 450cc, there are world cups for the following categories: Quads, Women, and Junior. Unlike the much longer cross-country rallies, cross-country bajas generally take place in 2-3 days. As is the case with rally raid events the stages are long and arduous testing the skill and endurance of the riders.[1]

The FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship is the premier championship for the longer cross-country rallies.
