American Motorcyclist June 2018

AMA Legends & Champions Weekend Celebrates Motorcycling’s Best Dec. 7-9

Join The Festivities In Columbus, Ohio

For the first time ever, the AMA is combining three major events into AMA Legends & Champions Weekend, scheduled this year for Dec. 7-9 in Columbus, Ohio.

The weekend includes the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, the AMA Championship Banquet and AMA Congress.

On Dec. 7, AMA Congress will convene at the Hilton Columbus/Polaris at 8700 Lyra Drive in Columbus, Ohio. AMA Competition Commission members will meet to propose and debate rules governing AMA-sanctioned competition.

That evening, the Polaris Grand Ballroom will provide the setting for the 2018 AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, where the Class of 2018 will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. The Class of 2018, which will be announced this summer, will be chosen from individuals who have excelled in motorcycle design, advocacy, engineering and business, as well as those who have made lasting contributions to road riding, off-road riding and all categories of motorcycle competition.

On Dec. 8, AMA Congress will conclude with its annual General Session.

Then, the 2018 champions of AMA national and regional series and championship events will have their moment in the spotlight at the 2018 AMA Championship Banquet, also in the Polaris Grand Ballroom.

The following day, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Pickerington, Ohio, will host an open house in honor of the Class of 2018 and to install their Hall of Fame nameplates and representative motorcycles or memorabilia in the Hall of Fame museum.

Tickets for the 2018 AMA Legends & Champions weekend will be available soon.
