Challenging track layout awaits riders

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (Aug. 24, 2004) -- This weekend's doubleheader race at the Copper Mountain Resort and Village on Aug. 28-29 in Copper Mountain, Colo., will be the kickoff for the 2004 AMA Supermoto Championship.

The AMA Supermoto doubleheader weekend is part of the second annual Suzuki CycleFest. Highlighted activities include celebrity-lead rides, grueling on- off-road excursions, charity rides, rides for kids, and a massive motorcycle mall. Qualified motorcycle license holders are welcome to try new bikes on the manufacturer demo rides. Seminars, parties, and concerts will also be part of the weekend. Copper Mountain Resort and Village is located in the picturesque Rocky Mountains approximately 70 miles west of Denver directly off of exit 195 on I-70.

The AMA Supermoto Championship doubleheader season opener will feature top riders from motocross, road racing and flat track racing. This is the second year of the AMA Supermoto Championship. AMA Supermoto features tracks consisting of both dirt and pavement and combines elements from motocross, flat track and road racing, plus the unique Parts Unlimited UrbanCross section, which features a series of metal jump ramps that create motocross-style obstacles.

And speaking of the track, the Copper Mountain course layout will be one of the most unique in the series. With the scenic slopes of the Rockies serving as a backdrop, the track will incorporate a two-racing-line rhythm supercross-like section and a wide blue groove left-hand turn flat-track section, as well as a high-speed road racing course highlighted by UrbanCrossÔ ramps.

The Copper Mountain AMA Supermoto doubleheader will be taped and later telecast nationally on the Outdoor Life Network (OLN). For additional information on the Suzuki CycleFest and AMA Supermoto doubleheader contact (303) 377-3278 or visit the website www.cyclefestco.com.
