Remember all those old-school racers talking trash on each other earlier in the week? Travis Pastrana? Jeff Stanton? Damon Bradshaw? Broc Glover? Ryan Villopoto? Yeah those guys. They have been teasing some sorta' race, and we now have some details courtesy of this press release that came out this afternoon.
We don't have much other info besides this event will feature full sized bikes (it's not a pit bike race) and the PPV is designed to raise money for charity. The vibe appears to be really raw. That's all we've got—stay tuned.
The press release is below:
New York, NY—FITE announced today its newest iteration to the streaming combat sports platform, Moto Fite Klub. The event will take place at an undisclosed location on Tuesday, May 12, at 5:00 p.m. EST/2:00 p.m. PST exclusively on FITE Pay Per View. Moto Fite Klub, will feature the world’s biggest names in motocross and Supercross motorcycle racing, including Ryan Villopoto, Mike Alessi, Damon Bradshaw, Broc Glover, Jeff Stanton, Travis Pastrana, Ryan Sipes, Jake Weimer, Ivan Tedesco and Kevin Windham.
The first of its kind, Moto Fite Klub will feature match racing to determine the baddest dude in the world during this trying time and while the racing will be unparalleled, the charitable component will be equally as strong.
Moto Fite Klub will partner with a number of charities, including the good folks at Road to Recovery, Goggles for Docs, and many more. Whatever we can do to fight the good fight, we will do.
“We want to use this event as an opportunity to entertain sports fans and give back to some amazing charities,” said nine-time AMA Champion Ryan Villopoto. “This is an eclectic group of individuals that want to make the most of this time and provide for others, so I encourage you to purchase this event for a number of reasons.”
The live May 12 PPV event will be preceded on Monday, May 11 at 7 p.m. EST with the Moto Fite Klub Rider Roundtable discussion with all of the riders discussing the history of the sport and what fans can expect when they reignite decades old rivalries on the track. This Roundtable event will be available for free on FITE.
This is the sport that will reignite the world of entertainment. Be a part of it.

Jeff Stanton and Damon Bradshaw called me this weekend. They were throwing around an idea of doing a head to head bracket race with some legends in the sport. Said Broc Glover was willing to throw a leg back over a bike to join them under the conditions of me being there with my 500cc Zilla and if there was money to be made, some would go to charity of the riders choosing. I thought it was a joke but sounded awesome.. Shortly after, I get called out again by @ryanvillopoto so I called out Kevin Windham and by dinner last night we had a round table zoom call discussing this as an actual possibility.. the inner kid in me is bouncing off the walls. We don’t have a location and we dont have the details but as soon as we can legally get this small group of us together in one place after the quarantine, it will be happening. Details will be on the Instagram @motofiteklub This is not a joke. @90smotocross @dcracerx #letsrace @6time @damonbradshaw45 @hotsauce9 @r_sipes @mikealessi_800 @mxgoldenboy @jakeweimer12
