Sturgis Streets to Host AMA Supermoto Event
Sturgis, South Dakota, will be hosting its 4th Annual Sturgis Supermoto event in the city’s downtown streets this weekend.
An AMA-sanctioned event, it features Supermoto and Freestyle Motocross competitions and will, of course, be wrapped in the city’s Fourth of July celebrations. Supermoto combines elements of motocross, dirt track and road racing into one dynamic and exciting race.
The city’s purpose-built track features jumps and high-speed straights on both dirt and asphalt. The layout is designed to showcase the trademark versatility possessed by top Supermoto racers.
“We are very excited to be hosting this event”, said Jerry W. Cole, director of the City of Sturgis Rally & Events Department. “Never before have we had this kind of speed and horsepower competing right on Main Street.”
The pro and amateur practice sessions start at 4pm, with races starting at 6pm. The next day – Saturday 2 July – features professional riders from across the United States and Canada. Amateurs from around the region will also get the opportunity to show off their skills both Friday and Saturday.
“Sturgis Supermoto is one of the only events in the world where you can sit on Main Street and have lunch 10 feet away from the racers” said Cole. “It’s going to be a race we hope people won’t soon forget. We will also have some of our best local talent on the track and we’re hoping that our racing community will come out and support them.”
