EDMONTON, AB

(December 22, 2016) - The Motorcycle & ATV Show – Edmonton returns to the Expo Centre, Northlands January 13-15, 2017. This is Central Albertans first opportunity of the season to check out hundreds of 2017 motorcycles, side-by-sides, ATVS and scooters from the industry’s major manufacturers.

“The Motorcycle & ATV Show – Edmonton is the second stop on the seven city Canadian tour and is a highly anticipated event among the riding community,” says Laurie Paetz, Show Manager, ”this Show is a riding enthusiasts playground, offering all things bike related no matter what the age of the rider.”

Opening night is a salute to the ladies, whether she be a seasoned rider or one that is considering taking up the sport. She Rides kicks off the Show on Friday, January 13th, all women will receive half price admission after 5:00 pm. The evening will wrap up with one lucky lady riding away on a brand new 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 300 courtesy of Canadian Kawasaki Motors and Echo Cycle.

The Yamaha Riding acadamy provides an opportunity for children ages 6-12 to receive instruction, gear up and take to the track to give off-road riding a try, free of charge. Sessions run throughout the weekend, but space is limited so we encourage you to sign up early to reserve a spot

The action packed Ground n’ Gravity show will feature some of Canada’s best MX Freestylers, as well as Keith Sayers and Nick Dunne from south of the border. Not only will there be the exciting ramp to ramp aerial action, but Craig Latimer will be performing jaw dropping stunts on the arena floor. As if that weren’t enough, Jordan Szoke will be demonstrating the dexterity and agility of Observed Trials, one of his many disciplines. With some encouragement, Jordan’s four year old son, may just join his Dad on the course.

If old school styling is up your alley, check out the Vintage display put on by NORAL and the MX Alberta Vintage Flat Track Association. These bikes span decades and and have been restored and maintained by local collectors.

If you have every considered taking your riding a little more seriously and getting into competition, we have a few racers on hand that are more than eager to tell their stories and encourage other riders to take it to the next level. Ethan Barkley the 16 time Canadian Motorcycle Drag Racing Champion and the up and coming Mini Road Racing superstar, 13 year old Jonathan Finn, will be on site throughout the weekend.

No motorcyce Show would be complete without representation from all the clubs and associations, charity rides as well as touring destinations that cater to specifically to two, three and four wheel riders.
