It was announced today that the Metropolitan Sports Committee has won the AMA, Club of the Year award for the 2020 season.
When we think of awards, we typically think of riders winning races and normally it isn’t us on the receiving end of something like this. To be honest, it is an honor to be recognized by the American Motorcyclist Association for our hard work and dedication to the sport of motocross. Thank you AMA!
So how did we do it?
We did what we always do, we offered a great option for riders to participate in motocross racing with a consistent program our riders are accustom to. With great enthusiasm each and every year, the MSC aligns itself with wonderful companies such as Honda, Kawasaki, Husqvarna, Suzuki, Yamaha and for 2021 you can add KTM to that fold for OEM Contingency programs for our riders. We work with aftermarket companies such as DP Brakes, Apparel companies such as Fly Racing and Online Giants such as Rocky Mountain MC/ATV for their rider support programs again focused on our riders. Combine this with the 6 great tracks we schedule dates with and one heck of a banquet with huge trophies, special awards for those riders who EARN it and of course the best banquet prizes in the business with not just one but TWO BRAND NEW 2021 MOTOCROSS BIKES AND NOW ADD A MOUNTAIN BIKE we will be raffling off!
Yeah that is how its done. That is how it has been done for many years here at the Metropolitan Sports Committee AMA District 34
