Hundreds of diehard spectators filled the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s Crossroads August 9th, setting the stage for the highly anticipated first stop of the 2020 Bell Brawl. Bell Powersports rider Jeff Flaherty (@CBearStunts) drifted and wheelied his Harley-Davidson Road Glide to victory.
“The level of riding we witnessed today was simply mind blowing,” says Brett Conley, Bell brand marketing manager. “Every single one of these guys laid down runs that were well beyond what we’ve previously seen from them. To see the skills all going to the next level as a group elevating the sport is nothing short of awe inspiring.”
“Due to the pandemic, this year has by far been the most interesting for our Bell Brawl series,” stated Max Kuszaj of Ride and Destroy. “The crowd at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip was the largest we’ve seen to date at the venue. And the riders more than delivered, putting on the best Bell Brawl competition we have seen in four years.”
Now in its fourth year, the Bell Brawl is a V-twin specific motorcycle stunt contest catering to Harley-Davidson stunt riding. The event is an invite-only competition comprised of riders who drive the V-twin motorcycle stunting demographic.
Additionally, Brawl judges included motorcycle industry icons. Namely, XGames FMX medalist Lance Coury, “Sitdown Steve” Jones, and Bell Brawl veteran stunt rider Brendan Foley. Highlights from the competition are on social media (@Bell_Powersports and @Ride_and_Destroy_com)
