This is an idea who’s time has come. Flat track is as American as apple pie, baseball, and arguing over the NFL draft. Titans of the motorcycling world got their start in flat track racing. Men with not only dirt track championships but multiple world titles in not just one but several classes. Men with names like Roberts, and Hayden.
Between the seasons of MotoGP and AMA Flat Track there was a little event held by MotoGP champ Marq Marquez. The Superprestigio was a flat track race with riders from multiple disciplines and world champions galore. The winner? None other then current Gran National champion Brad Baker.
Now Harley Davidson want to take the spectacle to the X Games. How amazing would it be to see one off rides by other motorcycle stars just for X Games gold?
