August 20, 2012 (Temecula, CA) – Touted as the toughest extreme enduro in the United States, King of the Motos, held in conjunction with King of the Hammers announced details of the 2013 event and has officially opened pre-registration.
The “proof of concept” inaugural race in 2012 race was a self supported, twenty-one person invitational debuting in front of 30,000 spectators. Only six of twenty-one racers finished the brutal 85-mile course, adding to the mystique and reputation of the competition. Trials champion, Graham Jarvis from Great Britain won the race which combined punishing boulder climbs and descents linked with high-speed desert racing.
The 2013 race will expand in length from the previous 85-mile course, passing through many of the infamous rock climbs and descents that have made the Hammers area so famous within the off-road scene. The race will keep the spirit of the “one rider, one bike” format with no outside assistance, even in pits. Read More→
