In 2002 the City of Sturgis formed a Rally Department to facilitate the needs of visitors and vendors during the annual Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™, the Mustang Rally, Camaro Rally, Cushman Rally, Sturgis Supermoto and many other special events that take place throughout the year. The Rally & Events Department is responsible for coordinating special event operations within the city limits that include leasing city owned properties, coordinating vendor permits and leases, processing requests for city services and promotional efforts.

Sturgis Supermoto

In September of 2013, Sturgis held the first annual Sturgis Supermoto on the streets of downtown Sturgis.  Race fans lined the streets to cheer for their favorite professional and amateur racers on a design specific urban track.

This two day racing event caused quite a stir in the Supermoto community and so it has become an annual event!  You can get a taste of racing excitement by visiting the Sturgis Supermoto Facebook page to view photos and videos.

The 2016 Sturgis Supermoto will be scheduled soon - we hope you can join us!
