Glendale, AZ – January 10, 2018 – The Legend and Heroes Tour Traveling Moto Museum is pleased to announce that they will again take part in the pit party activation at Monster Energy Supercross on Saturday in Glendale, AZ. This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the tour and their mission of celebrating the Legends and Heroes of the sport. In addition to their display of vintage machines and memorabilia, the tour will honor CycleTrader.com Rock River Yamaha’s Christina Denney during the evenings opening ceremonies.
About Christina Denney – Christina is the owner of Roost Graphics and team manager for the CycleTrader.com Rock River Yamaha Team with riders Matt Bisceglia, Jacob Hayes and Brandon Hartranft competing in 2019. But her contribution to the sport is far more. As the team manager, Christina is responsible for not only the professional racing but is integral in their amateur support program as well. In 2011 she was recognized by MX Sports as the team manager of the year. She can spot talented racers at a young age and has been instrumental in the progression of riders through the ranks from amateur athlete to professional supercross star. Please join us on Saturday night as we honor a fantastic addition to the Legends and Heroes list of honorees.
Following on the success of its introduction in 2018, the Supercross Virtual Reality mobile experience (SXVR) continues in 2019. This interactive display allows fans to experience the thrill of supercross via VR technology and feel like they are on the racetrack. In addition to four virtual reality stations, the experience includes two racer skill stations. Produced by Ryno Equipment, the handlebar station, and balance station allow guests to test themselves and experience the what they have to be supercross athletes.
With the help of tour sponsor EZ-Up Shelters, the new for 2019 design will feature a walk-through timeline that celebrates all of the sports supercross champions, and since 2019 marks the 45th season of AMA Supercross, a unique feature will showcase the first champions and their machines. The tour stands behind the belief that “We Don’t Leave History Behind” and has kept the founding fathers, and mothers, pure in their thoughts by honoring the men and women that shaped supercross and motocross into what it is today.
Thanks to our local friends at each round, the Legends Tour features some of the best vintage motocross bikes on display in a single location. Featuring different vehicles at each round, our guests can relive the machines of their youth and show their family and friends the early days of motocross and supercross. Look for the Legend and Heroes Tour Traveling Moto Museum at each round of the Monster Energy Supercross series in 2019.
