Flat track added to X Games

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

A Harley-Davidson flat track racing event has been added to this year’s X Games. The invitation-only event takes place June 4 in Austin, Texas. 

Although sponsored by Harley, with champion American racers Brad Baker and Jared Mees both running H-D XR750s, the event is open to any brand of flat track motorcycle eligible for the AMA’s Pro GNC1 Twins class. The winner goes home with an X Games gold medal and a new Harley Street 750. 

“This is great for our sport,” said Brad Baker. “X Games is about performance, and flat-track racing is the perfect addition to this competition, allowing athletes from around the world to showcase just how they push the boundaries in their sport.”

Canadian Doug Lawrence is among the invitees for the event.
