You have to witness Unimotorcycle Drag Races daily at the Buffalo Chip free access CrossRoads. Starting out as a crowd gathering spoof outside a local bar during 1981 Daytona Bike week that was conceived after a night of hard-drinking, the Unimotorcycle Drag Race is a one wheeled motorcycle, sans breaks and steering, that relies on shear guts and skill to make it 100 feet to the finish line!
Unimotorcycle Drag Races have grown into an international event with currently 17 nations competing for the coveted title as winner as well as the Guinness Book of records record breaker.
No motorcycle event that has the words daredevil in them would be complete without the legendary “Wall of Death”. The Wall of Death dates back to the 1920’s when Harley Davidson & Indian factory motorcycle stuntmen fought hard on a vertical racing wall made of wood to prove who the best rider on the best motorcycle was. Patch McGillicutty will be back, to not only show off his prowess as the champion on the Wall of Death, but he will attempt to break Guinness Book World Records by riding the infamous Wall of Death while trying to reach speeds of 91 mph or faster!
Think that’s enough daredevil & stuntman insanity?? Well guess what? It isn’t! Throughout the entire 2014 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally the Buffalo Chip will be hosting a full line up of wild and crazy daredevil events at the free access CrossRoads and that isn’t all…along with the tough as nails motorcycle stunts, racing, and record-breaking excitement will be loads of live music and entertainment.
