As the field general in charge of American Honda's desert racing efforts for more than 20 years, Ogilvie was a masterful tactician, commanding the small armies of people and matriel it takes to win the Baja 1000 a staggering 19 times. Focusing that singular skill set in various capacities at Honda, he came to be called "Mr. XR," earning the sort of authority only fools would question--and even then, never twice. Any who have ridden an off-road Honda built since '84 owe Ogilvie a debt of gratitude. All who were lucky enough to call him a friend feel the incalculable hole left by his passing on April 13. For two years, he fought a battle with a rare form of cancer with the same quiet toughness that marked every mile of his racing and every minute of his life.
