Harley-Davidson Flat-Track Racing Newest Medal Sport At X Games Austin

Harley-Davidson Motor Company - X Games Austin

It’s official!  A new motorcycle racing competition will throw dirt June 4 during the inaugural Harley-Davidson® Flat-Track Racing at ESPN’s X Games Austin. Harley-Davidson sponsored two flat-track exhibitions last year, and thousands of fans took to social media to express their excitement for the sport.

“This June, fans in Austin will experience a new kind of action sport as they watch top athletes in flat- track race for gold,” said Dino Bernacchi, Director U.S. Marketing, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “Words can’t explain the rush of watching these athletes riding within inches of each other, kicking up dirt and carving through corners. It’s pure adrenaline-charge action.”
The inaugural race is an invitational format, with athletes from around the world receiving the opportunity to be part of the action. The Harley-Davidson XR 750 also joins the field of motorcycles battling for the top podium position at Circuit of The Americas. The gold medalist will be awarded a brand-new Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 motorcycle.
“This is great for our sport,” said Brad Baker, Harley-Davidson Factory Flat-Track team rider, “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.”
The Harley-Davidson Flat-Track Racing competition is scheduled to air on ESPN at 9 p.m. (EST), June 4. For details on the race and a list of invited flat-track athletes, visit xgames.com.
