MX Rewind at Unadilla to Host Prestigious Marquis Bike ShowWednesday, April 4, 2012 | 11:45 AM
New Berlin, NY - Unadilla MX is proud to announce today the next event in the MX Rewind program: The Unadilla Marquis Bike Show. The Unadilla Marquis will consist of forty of the best and most historic off road bikes on the planet, and with a number of prestigious awards that will be determined by a panel of judges that include respected industry leaders and innovators.
There will be 12 classes to enter including: The Classics (Pre-1970); Classic Iron (Pre 1960); Vintage Bikes (1970's Era); Retro (1980's Era); Classic Contemporary (1990's Era); Factory Works Bike; Mini-Competition; Mini-Entry Level; Woods Bike/Enduro; Pit Bike; Best European Bike; Rarest Bike.
For those who have a vintage bike that they are proud of but may not quite fit the "Marquis" level, MX Rewind has a spot for you too. There will be a "Ride 'Em Don't Hide 'Em" bike show for those bikes that fans and racers just wish to show off and let others admire. This non-juried show is open to all.
"We are really excited to feature the best vintage bikes out there" said Unadilla's Greg Robinson. "We have had smaller vintage bike displays at other events and have watched how popular they are with our fans, as they able to see history live, and right in front of them. This is a great chance to bring together a large number of the best classic bikes all in one place. At the same time, we also know that a lot of people take great pride in their bikes and the work they have put into them. While these bikes may not be the best of the best, they deserve to be seen as well. That is why we chose to offer both levels at the MX Rewind bike show."
