Our friends over at Mxlarge are proud to present the very first MXlarge AMA Supercross and Motocross tour of America. Visiting the final round of the AMA Supercross, and the opening two rounds of the AMA Nationals and the final round of the AMA Arenacross series this 26 day tour will be the holiday of a life-time.
The MXLarge tour will also take in many of the legendary motocross shops, such as Pro Circuit, FMF, Troy Lee, the Tom White Museum, many of the major Motocross and Supercross facilities in California, including Perris Raceway, Glen Helen, Lake Elsinore, Milestone MX Park.
We will also visit the famous Angel Stadium site where Anaheim I is held every year in January, also the LA Coliseum where Supercross started in 1972 in USA, and much more. Historical venues worth a quick look and time to remember the legends that raced at these magical places
Special industry tickets for the AMA Supercross and Motocross events have been organized, with access to the paddock and VIP treatment. Visiting the circuit the day before the event and experiencing the preparation that goes into the single day event on the Saturday.
Also included in the tour will be sightseeing to places like Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, the famous Route 66, the ghost town of Calico, the magnificent coast line between LA and San Francisco, visiting the city of San Francisco with its bridge, famous Fisherman’s Wharf and the prison of Alcatraz. In Los Angeles it is possible (if you like) to visit Hollywood, Disneyland, Universal Studios and so much more. It’s a trip of a life time, and one that will include some amazing racing combined with some of the best sights of this brilliant country.
The Pacific Coast Highway between Los Angeles is the dream of road trip songs. Windows down, feeling the salty sea breeze bellow straight into the passenger seat, every angle a postcard-perfect panorama of the majestic Pacific Ocean. Those who stop, stop for wine and endless hiking through trails of redwood forests, beaches and rocky cliffs. They stop because they’re following a quest through important touchstones of American culture, not the least of which include Big Sur, Cannery Row and Hearst Castle.
San Francisco is a must, from amazing views and a sea of sea lions to chowder bread bowls and California wines, your visit to San Francisco starts at Pier 39, the most visited destination in San Francisco, or what about the Golden Gate Bridge: Once called “the bridge that couldn’t be built,” today it is one the seven wonders of the modern world. This magnificent bridge, perhaps San Francisco’s most famous landmark, opened in 1937 after a four-year struggle against relentless winds, fog, rocks and treacherous tides. Spanning 1.7 miles from San Francisco to the Marin headlands, the bridge’s sidewalks are open during the day to pedestrians including wheelchair users and bicyclists. Or Lombard Street often called the “crookedest” street in the world, this scenic road on Russian Hill features tight turns, fragrant gardens and beautiful views of the bay, Alcatraz, and Coit Tower. Alcatraz was the site of the first lighthouse in the Western United States but became a federal penitentiary from 1934-1963, housing famous convicts such as Al Capone and George “Machine Gun” Kelly. Now, this once infamous prison island is part of the Bay Area’s 80,000-acre Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
The cost of the 26 day tour is 4800euro, which includes your air-ticket, race tickets, hotels, and rental car. It will be four people to a car (large cars will be hired so plenty of room for luggage), and two people to share a twin room. Anyone wanting their own room will need to pay the difference. This tour is possible from anywhere around the world, be it leaving from Europe or countries like Australia, South Africa or Brazil (ticket prices will be taken into account if cheaper or more expensive).
You will need around 2500euro for spending money for such things as your meals (breakfast will often be included in the hotels so no cost for breakfast on many occasions), fuel (split between four in a car), tickets for attractions such as Disneyland and Alcatraz (if you prefer not to attend these attractions that is also possible).
The tour will be not only visiting some great races and sights, but the whole experience will be based on having fun and enjoying this, the trip of a lifetime. A group of motocross fantics travelling around one of the most interesting spots in the world.
Once you have decided to book your tour a deposit of 1500euro is asked, with the final payment made in February. Places will go fast, so be quick and make sure to be involved in what is going to be a special experience. Final bookings will be taken in late January.
