Every year the Motorcycle Roadracing Association (MRA) brings the smell of gasoline, burnt rubber, and excitement to Colorado, and even though the racing season is over, there’s still a lot going on as the organization prepares for next year.
There’s Motorcycle Racing In Colorado!
This year’s champion, Ryan Burke, was crowned earlier in the season, but there were still battles to be fought during the season finale at Pike Peak International Raceway. Ricky Orlando and Dan Turner fought it out for the number two spot in the 2015 championship, and after a thrilling scrap in the opening laps, Turner managed to pull into the lead and win the race. It was no good though, because Orlando finished 0.125 seconds behind his runner-up rival, and kept his points lead in the championship.
The MRA 2015 Season Wrap Up
Trophies for these riders, and announcements of the winners of other classes, were handed out on November 14th at the 2015 MRA Season Awards Ceremony where the stand outs in every racing category were honored. The organization is expected to have a rule change meeting on December 5th, and have already announced the 2016 season’s board of directors and season calendar.
Getting Ready For Next Season
Motorcycle organizations provide another point of community for motorcyclists all over the state, no matter what kind of bike you ride. At these races you can find classes, vendors, and even the Law Tigers have been known to show up from time to time. If you’re interested in going out to see the races, the season starts on April 30, 2016. If you’re looking to volunteer or race, head over to the MRA website.
