BOSTON, July 27, 2010 â€“ The city of Sturgis, South Dakota is known to motorcycle enthusiasts as home to one of the largest annual motorcycle rallies in the world. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people flood Main Street in Sturgis and ride the breathtaking roads that connect the many towns of the picturesque Black Hills region. The faithful will this year celebrate the 70th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, taking place from August 9-15.
The first Sturgis Rally, known as the Black Hills Classic, was held on August 14, 1938 with a race of nine participants and a small audience. The Rally has since grown into an event that has drawn nearly 13 million people since 1990, with another half-million expected to flood downtown Sturgis this year. The full schedule of activities and entertainment this year includes burnout drag competitions, extreme motorcycle stunts, half-mile races and live concerts from bands and artists including Bob Dylan, Motley Crue, Alice in Chains and Disturbed. more
