2017 Moto Beach Classic
Bolsa Chica State Beach | Huntington Beach, California
October 14th, 2017
The team at Roland Sands Design has been dreaming about a beachfront moto event for years. We have finally been given the keys to the kingdom at Bolsa Chica State Beach. We are partnering with our friends at Sea Legs Live, a legendary concert venue on the sand, to bring a day of reggae with Black Uhuru and Wargirl and a night of rock with Lit and Unwritten Law. If that wasn't enough, we're also taking Super Hooligan Flat Track and motorcycle drag racing to the beach. Throw in a West Coast Board Riders Surf Comp, art show, demo rides and unique vendors, and you have an incredibly entertaining day at the beach with something for
everyone. The Moto Beach Classic is on Saturday, October 14th at Sea Legs Live. Tickets start at $29. Limited VIP tickets are available. Kids under 10 are free.
Indian Motorcycle presents the RSD Super Hooligan Bolsa Banzai Championship Race In what we believe is an industry first, Roland Sands Design and Indian Motorcycle are bringing beachfront flat track motorcycle racing to Southern California. We'll be assembling a specially built 110 x 300 ft. track to accommodate sideways flat track racing action next to the surf. This will be the penultimate round of the Super Hooligan National Championship race series, where a $50K Indian FTR race bike will be awarded to the series Champion. Dirt flat track classes being featured are: Super Hooligan, Open Pro, Run What Ya' Brung, Cycle Zombies Degenerate Choppers & Tank Shift Vintage. Plus mini bike road racing on an asphalt course. This is the Bolsa Banzai!
BMW presents the Salty Sprint Races
BMW Motorrad will be presenting man on man (or woman) Drag Racing action, pitting bike on bike in a straight line next to the surf at Bolsa Chica. A paved 1/8 ish' mile sprint course will be fashioned next to the flat track parallel with the beach. BMW will be presenting a Boxer on Boxer Cup, featuring invited riders as well as a drag race free-for-all, pitting bikes of all types against each other for the Salty Sprint Crown.
West Coast Board Riders Surf Comp
Board Rider Clubs are united through West Coast Board Riders competition up and down the West Coast and for the first time will be competing at Bolsa Chica. These Board Riders Clubs include the best non-pro surfers from Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Seal Beach, Dana Point, Ventura and San Clemente. The energy is pumping and the competition is fierce as the teams hit the water to claim which city will stand on the podium and hoist the crown. Fast Surfboards Surfdrags Brian Bent and Fast Surfboards will bring the speed and grace of handmade kookbox surfboards to the WCBR competition at Bolsa Chica. Part floating artwork and part wave-dragster, the kookbox epitomizes the smooth sliding style of surfing's early years, giving us a peek into history and the art of trimming.
