Colorado MM is ON — Despite the fires, the July 27-30 Colorado Motomarathon is still a go, and will be looping out of Boulder and Mike’s Motorcycle each day. The burn areas are a site to see, and we will try to include some of those on our routes depending on conditions and closures. It has been an unusually HOT summer already, so bring your mesh along with the electric vest!
WISCONSIN MM IS OFF — Due to logistical constraints, the Wisconsin Motomarathon that was scheduled for Oct. 4-7 is postponed and may be rescheduled next year.
New England MM — The NE MM was a big success and a good time for all, and pushed the grand total of lifetime Motomarathoners to over 200 riders since the Association was founded in 2009. Scenery and routes were fabulous thanks to Routemaster Daniel Monteiro and his team. Congratulations to Halo Award Winner (and safe rider) Lauren Secular, who won a Colorado Ski condo stay at Mountainside at Sol Vista, generously donated by Paul DiMarchi. Thanks also to sponsors Twisted Throttle, European Cycle Sports and The Birchbend Motolodge.

About the Motomarathon Association
The Motomarathon Association runs an annual series of four-day rides over the best roads and through the best scenery in the country, averaging 300-400 miles each day. Routes remain secret until the night before each day’s ride. Participants must complete a series of self-recorded check-points using digital cameras to photograph their badge number at designated landmarks. Event, season and lifetime checkpoint standings are maintained at www.motomarathon.com. You can also go to the website to register for an upcoming ride.
