It all started with a vision by one of off-road’s most accomplished moto man, Jimmy Lewis. He always wanted to create a US survival enduro and it was on this day that he decided where he would build his tortuous course. After all, Lewis had entered and completed some most of the worlds most renowned events: DAKAR, Gilles Lalay, Last Man Standing.
It was on this day in Southern California’s Johnson Valley, Lewis was riding around and stumbled upon a massive encampment and decided this is where he would one day build his masterpiece enduro. He had just found Dave Coles Hammertown and the vision of America’s toughest motorcycle race was born: King of the Motos becomes a reality today at 11:00 AM.
Listen to Lewis explain what may be his crowning achievement
Invite only, no entry fees, no rules and $10,000, winner take all. Today, history is made with what may someday be the world’s most famous and difficult motorcycle enduro.
One of the important aspects of this race was the “thinking” part, as described by creator Jimmy Lewis. The riders were provided with a specially programmed Trail Tech Voyager GPS dash board to help them stay on the course during this painfully technical course. Trail Tech’s Voyager has a wide array of applications for all riders, from the most basic to the highly sophisticated.
