What do I Get for my Money?Well the answer to this question is in constant evolution. What exactly does that mean? It means that every year we work for months, right up until the event, to make sure this is a one of a kind weekend for everyone. We take pride in offering something that you can't find anywhere else. This event is so much more than "just another race". We will have updates over the next few months adding to the mix of what will happen at this year’s events.
As things come in we will add an update section to the navigation bar on the right. The updates section is where we announce all the cool things we have added. Past examples have been special Stimilon only Discounts, Prizes, what bands are (or are not) playing, what buckchilly is doing this year, new rules on the Vitamin Water Pit Party Challenge, Model Search, details for the instagram and video contests, and more - so stay tuned...
In year’s past we have had pit bike races, skate ramps, club 93/94, Smith Goggle Upgrades, Vitamin Water Pit Party Challenge, Twin Air Filter Upgrades, Pit Bike Obstacle Courses, Kiddy Pools, Mud Volley Ball (on the start line), Tandem Races (Must supply your own blow up doll), DJs, Metal Bands, Costume Parties, rally car rides, modeling contests, and, well honestly there has been so much more but you get the idea. Let’s just say there is more than one reason the Stimilon Motocross Challenge is so well attended.
This event weekend is so much more than a race. And it has become so much more than who wins. It is a celebration, a kick off to Summer, and just a fun weekend to come ride and race your dirt bike.
This event is all about riding. As we used to say – more riding than you can handle! The reason we limit entries is so that you don’t loose laps to qualifiers or get sent home early. By capping classes we are turning away good money, but you don’t get screwed on laps. Everybody gets their time.
Riding, Riding, and More RidingWith your race entry everyone will get at least 10 minutes of practice and 4 motos (2 per class). Still not enough for you? You can race a 3rd or even 4th class for as low as $15 each (depending how early you pre register). Why do more than 2 classes? Many people sign up for additional classes just to get more track time, extra practice, or to learn the track before the motos that they actually care about. If you think about it – it just makes sense – get the riding time you want!
Friday and Sunday there is additional riding if you think you can handle it – see below.
Vitamin Water Pit Party ChallengeWe launched this concept with Vitamin Water in 2010. This is a free contest for all to enter. All you have to do is make your pit area an expression of what you think Stimilon is and can be. This can be as big or small as you want it to be – each year we have some very cool, yet simple ideas that win. We also had some elaborate ones that were incredible!
All you have to do to enter is let us know that you want to be eligible and we will assign you a number card that needs to be displayed outside your pit area so the judges know who you are. But there is one rule – whatever you bring in, you must bring out – don’t leave your garbage for someone else to clean up. Thanks.
Set up is Friday, Judging is Saturday, and the winners are announced at the After Party Saturday night. Past prizes have included “several” cases of Vitamin Water each (we have multiple winners in multiple categories) and one year the “Best in Show” received 6 Vitamin Water branded Burton Snowboards. This is totally Free with your entry and each year we have some great pit areas. We have already gotten emails and calls of groups claiming they will win this year – so put your thinking caps on and start planning! More details to follow as we get closer to the event...
Pit BikesWe allow you to bring and ride your pit vehicle all weekend – provided you act responsibly! Pit Bikes, mini three wheelers, golf carts, rhinos, motorized beer coolers (don’t laugh, its true) – you name it. We want you to have fun but please respect the rules and realize this is not a right but a privilege.
You must register your pit vehicle by purchasing a vehicle pass and showing your driver’s license. Vehicle pass holder is responsible for the vehicle and anyone who drives it. If you or your buddy riding your bike acts like an idiot – you both leave. Every year we love to make one example early, so everyone gets it – please don’t be “that guy” and we will have a great weekend. All riders must wear a helmet at all times while operating vehicles.
Party, Party, PartyFriday Night – this is when it all starts. In years past we have had fireworks (unsanctioned), Pit Bike Obstacle Courses, Swimming, Volley Ball, impromptu pin the tail on the teenager, Beer Pong, Photo Shoots, DJs, and one rare instance of Brazilian Momba (Viva Brazil!).
Saturday is the judging for the Pit Party Challenge (see above), as well as other festivities – oh yeah, and there is this race too…
Saturday night is the (actual) party – everything will begin after the racing is done. All we can say here is if you were there in year’s past, then you know. If you heard about it, well then this is your chance to be part of the magic. Bands, Beverages, Babes (bring your own babe), Police Escorts, Costumes, Waterslides, DJs, Mud Whale rides – we have something for everyone…
Each year proves that when everyone acts like adults and takes responsibility for them selves, we can all party like we remember. As always, we have new surprises in store for this year, so if you have confidence that Stimilon events are always a party, then know we are working on making it even better this time around.
*Hint – Bring a costume to wear Saturday night – it seems to be the fashion, plus the magazines seems to love it!
Premature Ride Day - Pre Race Private PracticeNew this year - for the first time eva… We are doing an open practice BEFORE the race. You all asked about track time prior to racing - well here it is! Think you can handle it? Well we have a limited entry “Premature Ride Day” set up for Friday from 2-6pm. Details will follow This year we will only be selling 150 Premature Ride Day Passes. We want this to feel like a private ride day to insure you get the riding you want. The Ride Day will be broken up into 3 groups - Novice, Amatuer/Expert, and Vet (over 30). Each group will get (4) 15 minute motos (totaling 1 hour of riding) Similar to our Holeshot Radio Ride Days you all love so much. Anyway you look at it – we could charge a ton more and not limit entries and make bank – but you wouldn’t get the riding time you deserve – so take advantage of our generosity (it wont last). New this year - anyone can purchase a ride day pass, however, discounts are applied if you purchase a race package as well. And once we sell all 150 it is closed! This year Premature Ride Day Passes start for as little as $15 (depending on when you pre register) The Premature Ride Day is 2-6pm Friday May 27th.
Premature ride day rule number one – No refunds! If you break your bike or your body, there are no refunds. We are not your mechanic (so check your tire pressure, gas cap, etc before you ride) We also know you are no Ricky Carmichael - so if you think you can quad the double - DONT!
Badass Hangover Olympics!You have asked for more fun, and we were listening (and apparently drinking during those "meetings") New this year - the Badass Hangover Olympics!!!
Sunday we will have several contests - think the "feats of strength" for Motocross. These will be fun tongue in check competitions for some to compete in and everyone to watch and cheer. Anyone can enter however registration is limited per class. Discounts are offered to those who pre register to race with us Saturday.
Badass Hangover Olympic classes:

Repeat for 45 minutes. - most laps win. Limit 80 entries (again we will generate random teams)
2) Holeshot Bracket Race: Head to head Holeshot race. Double Elimination including losers bracket. Winner advances. Lets see who is the fastest to turn 1. Limit 24 entries

6) Tire toss - Huck a tire. Where it falls is your spot. Farthest distance wins. Limit 25 entries.
PrizesIf you even have to ask about prizes, then you don’t know anything about Stimilon. We don’t mean to be cocky, but ask around – we got the goods! Thanks to unbelievable industry support we have some of the coolest stuff to give out. And with our demented minds always finding new ways to play robin hood, more than just the winners go home happy.
But a word of warning here: Come to race, party and just have fun. Let the prizes be what they are – a bonus. We can’t tell you how many times we have seen riders walk away from other races bummed out because they didn’t get some stupid trophy. This event is more a celebration of comradery and riding then it is to see who wins.
RafflesThink we are kidding? If you have never been to a Stimilon Event, then you have no idea. Its like Merry Freakin' Christmas around here...
