The City of Sturgis is proud to announce Jody Perewitz as the 2021 City of Sturgis Grand Marshal.
Jody Perewitz has become one of the most recognizable women in the motorcycle industry today. She has paved her own way into history by becoming the first woman to ever jockey an American V-Twin powered motorcycle into the record books at well over 200 MPH. She currently holds 16 land speed records, one of which is a world record.
In 2018, Jody rode a 1926 Harley Davidson JD to complete all the miles from Portland, ME to Portland, OR, becoming one of only 3 women to complete the entire Cannonball. Jody also competed in the ‘Motorcycle Chase’, an endurance race across the country from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to Key West. She successfully finished this race riding a 1936 Harley-Davidson VLH.
When Jody is not on two wheels, she handles the marketing and day-to-day activities at Perewitz Cycle Fabricators, located in Halifax, MA, where she works side by side with her father, legend Dave Perewitz. The Perewitz name is world renown in the custom motorcycle industry and is known for producing some of the most sought-after customs.
The City of Sturgis Motorcycle Rally will take place August 6 - 15, 2021. To learn more visit: https://sturgismotorcyclerally.com.
