“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. We want to create a first-class event for some very amazing racers and those that come to watch,” 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.”

In September of 2013, the city hosted the First Annual Supermoto event. The race was a huge hit with racers and the large crowd of race fans that lined the track. The event is free for spectators so we invite everyone to bring their families to Sturgis and cheer on their favorite riders and don’t forget the City’s Fireworks display will be held at dusk after the races on Saturday night, July 2.
