My eyes squint from the bright sun, a breeze rushes over my face just as I put my helmet on. I secure the straps and start my bike. I don’t know what’s louder, my heart pounding or the roar of the dirt bikes! As my fellow competitors and I eagerly anticipate the start of the race, I focus on a strong race and really having fun. Dirt Bike Racing is exciting on so many levels! As a kid, these were the family, fun-filled memories and weekend days that fueled my passion to do more, and as an adult, it’s these cumulative memories that drive me to bring the opportunity of motorcycle and off-road racing to other kids and families throughout Colorado and for the first time to Moab, Utah on November 11-12. This event takes place at the Old Spanish Trail Arena, 3641 S. Hwy 191 starting at 8am. General Admission: $10 for ages 12-112yrs/ $5 for ages 6-11yrs/ 5 and under free.
As a father of two young boys, it has been a dream to create a weekend activity and event that is family-orientated, community-driven with an underlying mission to teach and instill basic values of community, leadership, and sportsmanship. After many conversations, dreams and plans, 2014 proved to be the beginning of something not only the community, but also local, and family-owned businesses and sponsors would look forward to.
October 2014 was first race Moto Mayhem put on and indeed the beginning of something incredibly special. It was the perfect intertwining of the community and off-road racing!
Moto Mayhem was created with the sole intention of bringing an affordable, family-orientated, “Enduro-X” style racing series to the community in which we thrived. I believe as racing parents; we are directly responsible for the next generation of caring and respectful children and racers. It is my passion to help as many kids as possible share the experiences of dirt bikes and racing. I also strongly believe that when a child is shown how a caring, community-driven group of people interacts with one another, they are more likely to become a productive part of the same and other communities.
We hope that our story ignites a passion within you, so you too can experience the fun-filled, family-orientated weekend Enduro-X off-road racing Moto Mayhem has to offer!
