Triumph Motorcycles America has extended its support for Motoblot – a Chicago motorcycle rally that celebrates motorcycling’s rich heritage and lifestyle. Triumph will now be the main sponsor through 2016.

This year’s 11th annual Progressive Insurance Motoblot Chicago powered by Triumph takes place June 25-28 in Chicago, and features an entire weekend of motorcycles, events and live music.

This year’s Motoblog begins with a VIP Kick Start Party, and continues through the weekend with a vendor paddock, motorcycle show and live music from the Chicago School of Rock, among others.

The Iron Moto Challenge – an “anything goes” build off – will return, and feature four teams competition for top honors as they customize a Triumph motorcycle. This year’s Iron Moto Challenge will feature three Chicago area Triumph dealers, Motoworks Chicago, Windy City and Woodstock, as well as a private builder.

“Our goal is to bring together all the facets of this unique motorcycle culture, the bikes, builders, music, art, fashion and give them a great urban setting where they can celebrate,” said Larry Fletcher, founder of Motoblot Chicago. “Motoblot is thrilled to continue its alliance with Triumph Motorcycles. Triumph is easily the favorite manufacturer of our attendees, all you have to do is look at the hundreds of Bonneville’s, Thruxton’s and Scrambler’s that pour into the event.”

Motoblot has established itself as one of the premier rallies for vintage and custom motorcycles with Chicago as the backdrop, the United States’ third largest city.

“We’re excited to return as a partner with Motoblot. The event is a celebration of the motorcycle lifestyle, so it’s a perfect fit for the Triumph brand,” said Matt Sheahan, COO of Triumph Motorcycles America. “Motoblot continues to grow in attendance and the features expand for all to enjoy. It’s a must do event that kicks off the summer riding season.”

Along with displaying various motorcycles, Triumph will also be offering a chance to win a $500 voucher for use on Triumph parts, accessories and clothing on For further details on Motoblot, including detailed event schedule and how to purchase tickets, visit
