Round 8 AMA Championship Snow Bike Series at Bogus Basin

THE EPICENTER OF A NEW WINTER SPORT.

SNOW BIKE SERIES FOUNDER, RON DILLON:

"In the fall of 2008 2Moto asked us to literally create a new sport, using a new-fangled thing that they created called a snow bike. Flashpoint, the world's first-ever snow bike race happened at the McCall, Idaho Golf Course in January of 2009. Today, the snow bike industry is on fire and many, many people are looking for the challenge of racing a new kind of machine. This is a shared effort, between industry manufacturers, avid motorcyclists, and venues who support winter, motorized activities has resulted in the AMA Championship Snow Bike Series winter motorcycle racing.

Last year this was the first motorized event ever held at Bogus in their 64 year history. Bogus is located 16 miles from downtown Boise at 6,000 feet. At a nearly 3 mile track, racers raved about last year’s course. It is the longest course of the year and features over 400 feet of climbing per lap.

WHERE: Bogus Basin Ski Resort – Bogus Basin Road, Boise, Idaho 83629 (208) 332-5100

WHEN: Saturday, April 8, 2017 – 9am to 4pm SPECTATOR COST: Ages 13-Up $10, Ages 12-Under Free

HOST HOTEL: Pioneer Condos, (only 50 feet from race track!) Bogus is offering a special, racer price on their one-bedroom condos for $149 per night plus a $58 cleaning fee, and one of these units will sleep 6 to 8 people.
