3 intense motocross events you need to see live

Dirt Bike Events You Need to See to Believe

The temperature has started dropping, the leaves are changing. It’s really happening. The summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean the gasoline has stopped pumping through your veins! If you need one last pick-me-up before old man winter rears his ugly head, you need to take a look at our list of 3 dirt bike events you need to see to believe! Come on, one last ride before we put the two-wheelers in storage, what do you say?

The Most Extreme Dirt Bike Events

*WARNING* these events are not for the faint of heart. Strap on your helmet and get ready for some extreme motocross viewing!

make sure you see the Monster Energy Supercross - Monster Energy Cup motorcross events

1. Monster Energy Supercross – Monster Energy Cup

High stakes, high risk, high reward. The Monster Energy Cup is letting racers put it all on the line in Las Vegas, Nevada. Three dirt bike events happen in the course of one night, and if a rider takes first place in all three? They get to take one million dollars home for all their hard work. 

If that wasn’t enough excitement for you, how about FanFest that starts before the cup? Rider autographs, BMX and skateboarding demos, and live music are just a few of the awesome spectacles to behold before the big show. 

one of the motocross events you gotta get to is the Red Bull Hare Scramble Series - Erzberg Rodeo

2. Red Bull Hare Scramble Series – Erzberg Rodeo

This is far from Red Bull’s first rodeo. The Erzberg Rodeo is a legendary event that has happened annually in Austria since 1995 as part of Red Bull’s Hare Scramble series. It is absolutely the most famous and biggest dirt bike event in all of Europe! Each year 1,800 riders come from across the continent to prove their chops 

This 4-day event has everything you could want from an extreme motocross event. Long endurance races, steep hill climbs, high-speed madness. What more could you ask for, really? Don’t take our word for it, though. Check out this recap from the 2019 races.

Hard Enduro Series - Hell’s Gate

3. Hard Enduro Series – Hell’s Gate

Let’s forget about all the mud and the mayhem for a moment and travel to beautiful Tuscany, Italy. Tuscany is one of Italy’s most historic regions, home to beautiful Rennaissance art by legendary artists like Michelangelo and Botticelli. Tuscany is also home to one of the most difficult and aptly named races for motocross riders, Hell’s Gate.

What awaits riders at Hell’s Gate? Nothing but pure Hell, of course. Riders qualify in a race held in the morning. For the final 11 mile race in the evening, riders are eliminated lap by lap until the final few battles it out over muddy hills, huge rocks, and the final steep climb toward the mouth of Hell. You can’t believe these conditions without seeing them, so please, be our guest.

Are You Ready to Race?

are you ready to race? don't worry! just go watch!

It’s all right if you’re not. Truth be told, we might skip out on participating in these ones as well. Good thing you don’t have to have more guts than brains to watch these incredible dirt bike events. If you want to relive these events for yourself, check out some of the past years’ races here and here.

This is one of those autumn rides you have to savor. The kind of ride where you take some time to stop and smell the roses. You’ll definitely feel as though you might be heading into another realm…

Why is it called the Tunnel of Trees?

Well, it’s because the forest of evergreens and hardwood trees that surround the zig-zagging road tower overhead and narrow down toward the pavement as if you’re traveling through a tunnel. Maybe it’s leading you to Narnia? Who knows! Why not take an autumn ride and find out for yourself?

There are plenty of colorful places to stop along the way, local business ranging from shops and dives. Come to see all there is to offer for yourself!

It’s just you and the road. Who will conquer who? There are no houses, no side roads, and no intersections.

autumn rides across the USA are made for a variety of skill levels and interests

The Kancamagus Highway – North Conway, New Hampshire

The Kancamagus Highway has no clever marketing name, nor does it need one. This highway speaks for itself as it guides you directly through the magnificence that is the White Mountains. This is one of those autumn rides that bring you closer to the heart of nature, true quiet, and beauty.

In the fall, the colors here explode, and folks head here for the picturesque views. (They don’t call them “leaf peepers” for nothing!) These New England mountains will be washed in hues of gold, orange, and reds for 34.5 miles, the foliage isn’t limited to just the highway. What more could you possibly ask for? Let these mountains inspire you!

When you need to refuel your bike and your body, explore the local towns around these giants. Enjoy the hospitality of the kind locals and they’re sleepy, yet lively, little towns.

Perhaps they will tell you a secret about a hiking trail not far off or maybe a small pub that has the best sandwiches and beer. You may even find yourself where the Old Man of the Mountain used to be. “The Old Man” is a historic sight, where nature’s marvel surveyed the scene of New Hampshire’s mountains for years. Sadly, the Old Man returned to the earth in May 2003, but there is a memorial for him. 

Why not hop on that bike and find your way up here again? (We’re assuming you crossed Laconia Motorcycle Week of your bucket list already as one of the motorcycle rallies you HAD to go to.)

Reconnect with nature and enjoy autumn in New England at its finest.

We Have a Few Quick Tips to Keep You Safe During Your Autumn Rides

Fall is a different season and has a different set of things and places, and riders should heed a little caution.

While there may not be snow or an avalanche, (depending, of course, where you are…) accidents can still happen during autumn rides.

Here are a few quick tips of things to be aware of when you’re out riding:

  • Keep an eye out for dry or wet leaves: Dry leaves could potentially cover hazards such as potholes or branches on the road that you don’t want to drive your bike over and damage your wheels or worse, injure yourself. Wet leaves are also a hazard and slick up the road which may cause you to slip. Basically be aware of all the leaves on the road. 
  • Deer season is here: Deer are far more active this time of year. More collisions with deer are likely to happen, so be alert! They are fast and sometimes they will freeze in the middle of the road. Pay attention to signs alerting drivers and riders to deer crossings. 
  • Leather is your best friend: Weather during this time of year is notorious for being finicky. It may go from warm bursts to chilling winds. Leather will not only keep you warm but offers you adequate protection as well. Check out TMS’s Motorcycle Apparel for some stylish, yet warm and protective, riding gear.
  • Cold nights: We’ve gotten so used to the summer heat that sometimes we forget that night temperatures can drop rapidly. Plan accordingly, especially if you are camping. 
  • Frost and icy surfaces: When the weather drops at night things can still be frosted over in the morning. Keep an eye out for slick roads!

Are You Looking to Test Your Skills or Stop and Smell the Roses?

Now comes the time where you have to sit down and make a decision. Are you looking for a way to test nature or to be a part of it? Once you have an answer, it might make it a much easier time of deciding where you want to go. Do you want to head out toward Colorado? Or the opposite direction and up into northern New Hampshire? The choice is up to you!

Before you head on out though, be sure to stock up on all your gear, equipment, tools and accessories. You might need to gather a few more supplies before that autumn rides begin, so check out TMS Parts before you set off and get the parts and gear you need.

And remember, have FUN out there!
