Motorcycle Types Adventure / Dual-Sport 'Rocky Mountain Road Trip' 2010

‘Rocky Mountain Road Trip’ 2010

Motorcycle Charity

Join motorcycling legends Malcolm Smith and JN Roberts for the ride of a lifetime September 8-13, 2010. Set for JN Roberts’ 1,400-acre ranch in Montana, the event is limited to the first 20 riders, and the proceeds go to a truly worthy cause (MalcolmSmithMotorsportsFoundation.org).

Racing For Life (racingforlife.org) has organized this epic event to raise $10,000 to benefit the Malcolm Smith Motorsports Foundation and the El Oasis Orphanage, located in Valle de Trinidad, Baja California.

Called the "Rocky Mountain Road Trip 2010" the event will be held at JN’s private ranch, located about 30 minutes from Helena, Montana. The ranch features nearly 30 miles of single-track riding through beautiful Rocky Mountain forests. After three exhilarating days of riding with the two legends, the caravan will return to Southern California on Monday, September 13.

Each rider will pay their own way, and will be asked to make a $500 donation directly to the Malcolm Smith Motorsports Foundation. In return, riders receive a tax deduction receipt.

This six day trip is open to anyone who loves to ride dirtbikes and would love to experience the thrill of a lifetime riding with JN Roberts and Malcolm Smith for several days in the Rocky Mountains.

About The Ride
JN Roberts and Malcolm Smith are two of the greatest ambassadors in the history off-road racing, having won the very first Baja 1000 in 1967, countless desert races, numerous ISDE medals, international rallies and many more achievements too numerous to list. In addition to the single-track trails through woods and river crossings, JN has a 2.5 mile motocross track.

Although this is a working ranch, it is motorcycle friendly… Instead of opening gates, JN has fitted his ranch with ramps to jump over the cow fences. Joining in the festivities will be JN’s son, Jimmy Roberts and the El Oasis Orphanage Marketing Director, Daniel Ixcot.
