If you’ve seen any of my previous adventures, you’d know I love motorcycles. So, when Sideburn Magazine decided to bring it’s popular Dirt Quake event from the UK to the US (and settle it in my backyard) how could I not check it out?
What is Dirt Quake?
The original Dirt Quake, back in 2012, was Sideburn magazine’s idea to get novices racing their motorcycles, motorcycles that don’t fit into normal motorcycle sport, and at minimum cost.
Dirt Quake USA is a two-day event, with the opportunity to watch the pros and top amateurs race pure flat track bikes on Saturday, then complete novices compete on totally unfit-for-purpose bikes in the special Dirt Quake classes on Sunday. It’s also a show for spectators of all ages and will include dangerous stunts, live music, and the unforgettable spectacle of watching the exceptionally unprepared try to race the willfully inappropriate.
