This year’s Pre-Sturgis Party will take place on Thursday, Aug. 5 in downtown Mitchell, South Dakota, from 5-10 p.m. The community is invited to join the riders that stop-by on their way to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. This family-friendly event offers a fun night for all in attendance.
New this year, the First Official “Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle” Jump Rally. Wind’em Up for the largest Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle event ever held. Celebrities and kids will go head-to-head to compete for the longest jump in front of the World’s Only Corn Palace.
Not only will there be great fun for all with this throwback toy; but veteran jumper, Vince Ream aka “The 7” Daredevil”, will be joining the event. Ream is widely recognized as the top jumper in the world, and he will show off his talents by attempting to set the World Record for the longest jump by a hand powered toy motorcycle. This competition is an Evel Knievel Toys officially sanctioned event sponsored by California Creations, evelknieveltoys.com.
