Supermoto and Hooligans to Invade Sturgis Buffalo Chip 2017
The excitement of combined dirt/pavement racing known as Supermoto comes to Sturgis this summer. The AMA Supermoto riders will compete on Friday, August 11 and Saturday, August 12, through the Buffalo Chip Campgrounds and amphitheater, as well as surrounding city streets. Both races will precede the evening’s concerts, featuring George Thorogood and the Destroyers and the Doobie Brothers (Way to keep it hip and fresh for the supermoto crowd. –Ed.). Supermoto ranks among the most exciting forms of motorsport, as skilled riders navigate the transitions from dirt to pavement, fly off motocross-style jumps and back it in to turns on the asphalt.
“The AMA Supermoto racers will be blasting right through the campground,” said Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “The unique nature of the track will allow people to see the action up close and possibly without even leaving their campsite.”
