The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge announced that it has signed an exclusive agreement with Academy Award nominee David Roma, of Amor Factory, to produce a feature-length documentary on the August 2011 event and the riders taking part.
Hollywood-based Roma is a widely acclaimed film and television producer, whose credits include the TV shows “Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood,” “Hogan Knows Best” and the “Miami Ink” franchise that is in its third spin-off.
The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge is the world’s premier motorcycle endurance challenge and is sponsored this year by Harley-Davidson. In 2010 the event was won by motorbike enthusiast Will Barclay, who captured the winner-take-all prize of $500,000, taking just over eight days to complete the detailed navigational course from Florida to Alaska. In a change from last year, the top 25 finishers will receive cash prizes and H.O.G. Club members may be eligible for additional prizes including a 2012 CVO motorcycle.
The Hoka Hey Challenge is open to all riders of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, from the U.S. and worldwide. The 2011 Hoka Hey Challenge starts on August 5th, 2011 in Mesa, Ariz., and ends in Nova Scotia, Canada, with the course covering all 48 contiguous U.S. states.
