When the International Police Motor Skills Competition returns to Pier 32 under the shadow of the Bay Bridge Thursday, August 16 through Saturday, August 18, the folks in blue will be joined by Roland Sands Design’s Moto Bay Classic.

The inaugural Moto Bay Classic, put together by RSD and Rever, will entertain the crowds with classic punk rock, Super Hooligan flat track racing on a closed course, a custom motorcycle show, motorcycle art gallery, beer garden, food and more.

hooligans and police“We’re honored to be teaming up with the Police and Rever to expand the iconic Motor Competition into an action-packed celebration of motorcycle riding, music and culture,” said Roland Sands, Founder Roland Sands Design. “It’s exciting to have the chance to bring law enforcers together with ‘hooligans,’ united by a passion for two wheels.”

The International Police Motor Skills Competition is one of the most challenging law enforcement skills competitions in the world. The competition allows officers to showcase the amazing skills utilized when policing on a motorcycle.

Officers from a number of local and international law enforcement agencies will compete against each other in the timed obstacle course for the right to be named this year’s champion.

The competition begins with practice rounds on Thursday, August 16 followed by qualifying and class championships on Friday, August 17. The event culminates on Saturday, August 18, with the final competition for Top Gun and the Last Man Standing Challenge.

Saturday’s Moto Bay Classic will include a series of live musical acts with notable punk rock bands. Among the headliners performing on the main stage are the Eagles of Death Metal, T.S.O.L, and The Vandals. Each of these bands have their roots in California and will be coming home to perform select hits from their impressive catalogs that span more than four decades.

Police competition motorcyclesHighlights on Saturday include the final round of the Top Gun motor skills competition and the 6th round of the Super Hooligan National Championship, presented by Indian Motorcycle.

This authentic run-what-you-brung flat track race will be the first-ever in the Bay Area and include hundreds of riders including law enforcement teams competing bar to bar for top honors on an asphalt oval.

In addition to the Police skills finals and Indian Motorcycles Super Hooligan race, Saturday, August 18 will offer a number of other attractions and activities, including the first-ever Cops vs. Hooligans Gymkhana by Vance and Hines on a closed course, a special riding course for kids supported by Dunlop tires and a motorcycle stunt competition from Bell Helmets.
