The First Annual Mayo Moto Street Classic Exceeds All Expectations and Revitalizes the Tulsa Moto Scene.
RSD Super Hooligan National Championship and the Mayo Moto Museum teamed up to present the “Mayo Moto Street Classic”, a two-wheel festival, filled with racing, art, and live music in the heart of Tulsa Oklahoma Saturday, June 15th
LOS ALAMITOS, CA March 26, 2019 – The inaugural Mayo Moto Street Classic brought a unique blend of, art, live music custom motorcycles and more to the heart of Tulsa’s East Village on June 15th
When the Moto Classic Events series was developed it was the intention to evangelize hooligans and spread the gospel of 2-Wheel badassery to the furthest reaches of the planet. When Roland and team were considering different locations, it was decided. “If we are going to push this thing to the edge we might as well start from the middle.” Said Roland. So, for the 5th stop of the Super Hooligan National Championship Series presented by Progressive and powered by Indian Motorcycle the team partnered with the Mayo Moto Museum to bring the first annual Mayo Moto Street Classic.
The festival coincided with the official grand opening of the Mayo Moto Museum, a motorcycle and memorabilia collection boasting 200+ rare and unseen vintage bikes and hosted the fifth stop of the RSD Super Hooligan National Championship Tour, a series of heavy bike flat track motorcycle races across the U.S. curated by Roland Sands Design and Moto Classic Events, a California-based motorcycle, product, apparel and event company.
In addition to the races, the Mayo Moto Street Classic included a variety of activations including the Rockstar VIP and tasting booth, the Ives brothers Globe of Death, local food trucks, native craft beer, the Stay Gold art show featured art from esteemed international artists John Hammer, Jose Gallina, and Joseph Hitzelberger. MX legend and AMA outlaw Ronnie Mac celebrated his birthday with special guests Larry Enticer and YouTube sensation Danny Duncan. Pit Vipers Sunglasses gave out rad shades if you were adventurous enough to allow them to give you a mullet or an “old man cut” which is a shaved top with the back and sides still kept long. STACYC was on hand to give the kiddos demos on their very cool electric mini bikes and Super73 brought out an entire fleet of demo and race bikes. The BELL stunt team was also on hand wowing the fans with skids, wheelies and burnouts all while Live musical performances from Electric Rag Band, The Dustin Pittsley Band, Golden Ones, Seth Lee Jones Band, Paul Benjaman Band, and southern soul rockers, JJ Grey & Mofro played throughout the day and well into the evening.
“We were so excited to be a part of this event,” says Jason White, 2003 Heisman winner and Vice President of Air Comfort Solutions, the festival’s presenting sponsor. “This festival was beyond what we could have expected and drew people from all over the country to our city, giving us an opportunity to showcase all Tulsa has to offer. We were particularly happy to be able to contribute some of the proceeds back to the hardworking Oklahoma teachers.”
“It was incredible to bring the Super Hooligans to Tulsa,” says RSD founder, Roland Sands. “Super Hooligan racing is unlike anything else. The racing. The format. The individuals and the vibe are truly unique.” We built a racetrack in the middle of downtown Tulsa, over a variant of surfaces and obstacles. The track straddled the line between insanity and insane fun and we can’t wait to bring it back next year.” Added Roland.
