From Motorcycle.com | X Games is adding a new Flat-Track racing competition to this year’s event in Austin, Texas. Harley-Davidson sponsored two flat-track exhibitions last year but the 2015 X Games adds Harley-Davidson Flat Track Racing as a full medal event. The gold medalist will also win a new Harley-Davidson Street 750.
“This June, fans in Austin will experience a new kind of action sport as they watch top athletes in flat- track race for gold,” says Dino Bernacchi, director U.S. marketing, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “Words can’t explain the rush of watching these athletes riding within inches of each other, kicking up dirt and carving through corners. It’s pure adrenaline-charge action.”
