Moto Carnival - Globe, AZ Sept 27th - Free Destry Abbott Clinic - AMRA - DS Welcome

Rock Stars MC did a fun ride day last year with a bunch of moto games, trail riding and a focus on fun. AMRA needed a non racing kick off event to attract new folks, have fun, etc. So we came up with the Moto Carnival.

It is a purely fun event built for folks that have never raced, have raced, or have no desitre to race MOTORCYCLES. It is all about having fun on a dirt bike with like minded folks. We will have kids there, dual sport folks, heck even ArmPump is invited.

This is a small bike focused event, but some club members were planning a dual sport ride to the event from the valley. Not sure that is still happening as EZ broke 5 ribs and a scpula on his 990 on Monday. Any how we will have a Dual Sport class for the Motorcycle games. Special mention if a Dual Sport guy makes it through a tame Endurocross.


For $20, you get access to the fairgrounds riding area and endurocross. MotoCity demo bikes. Christini AWD demo? We will have a timed turn track, escargot, balance beam, slow race, barrel race and more. Prizes for the competitions. Raffle. Clinic by off road legend Destry Abbot. Cook out by the local Fire Department (extra fee). Team night race (extra fee). Free camping and more.

Location: Globe Fairgrounds
9-11 Free Ride
11-12 Destry Abbot Clinic (smal bike focus, but would likely translate)
12-1 Fire Dept Cooking, Raffle, Club Intros
1-4 Carnival Moto Games and Free Ride
4-5 Raffle and Awards
6-8 Team Night Race - Can ADV round up a team?


Post up with questions.

This sounds really fun! And to get to see a legend in action and get some pointers... Nice!

I am sure he would instruct me to twist the thingy on the right harder and quit taking those dad-gummed dirt naps!

This sounds like a hoot! I'll be in Oregon though. Have fun and good luck with the event.

Didn't hear about EZ! Heal quick and whatever you do EZ, don't laugh!

Awesome! We will have a kids loop and the kids can do the events as well. Maybe not the Endurocross based on size.

There will be a raffle. Likely some stickers too.

Roll Call?

I have heard of a couple folks coming up on big bikes. Any big bike 650 cc and up that makes it through the Endurocross gets a medal oh honor.

A slow race has been added. Also a moto swap meet is developing.

Last, Arizona State Parks has co-branded the event as a family trail day.

Should be a blast.

MotoCity KTM Husqvara, the AMRA Title Sponsor will also have demo bikes on hand! We will be doing demo rides, most likely during the free ride time but perhaps longer, you must be over 18, have a valid Drivers License, and proper off road riding attire. We will have the following bikes there:

2015 KTM 250 XCF-W
2015 KTM 250 XC-W
2015 KTM 300 XC (Rekluse and Stabilizer)
2015 KTM 350 XC-F
2015 KTM 350 XCF-W
2015 KTM 500 XC-W

The Rockstars have a several mile test loop set up and you should be able to one loop on each of the bikes!
