Moto Fite Klub is alive! Ten legends of the sport have decided to put their own event together to raise spirts and raise money for charity. It takes place next week, with a free bench-racing trash talk session at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PST Monday night, May 11, and then racing on May 12 on 5 p.m. EST/2 p.m. PST. The racing is a pay-per-view deal at $19.99 via FiteTV.
(Disclaimer: If you use the affiliate links for the pay-per-view from this article, the price remains the same but Racer X earns a small percentage of the sales.)
This is real racing on a motocross track on full-sized bikes. It's not a pit bike race. Pastrana is even busting out his Suzuki RM-Zilla 500! We're told the riders are following social distancing guidelines, so that means no mechanics and everyone has to drive to the undisclosed location where the race will be held. That'll just add to the stories!
The rider list is: Ryan Villopoto, Mike Alessi, Damon Bradshaw, Broc Glover, Jeff Stanton, Travis Pastrana, Ryan Sipes, Jake Weimer, Ivan Tedesco and Kevin Windham. They will be racing each other. That's nuts.
Here's the full PR. Make sure to sign up to watch next Tuesday night.
