The inaugural Moto Beach Classic started out as a wild idea from Roland Sands and crew in 2017 and has developed into a Southern California motorcycle cultural explosion. From massive concerts to short track racing on the sand in Huntington Beach, the MBC has always delivered the unexpected in the heart of Southern California surf culture.
This year's event brings a massive new partnership with our friends from Red Bull and their iconic Red Bull Straight Rhythm Race, for a one-day, jam-packed, moto-centric event with a projected attendance of 20,000 moto fans, at Huntington State Beach.
October 15, 2022
The Moto Beach Classic will anchor the cultural side of the day with Super Hooligan National Championship racing and over 100 riders doing battle on a dirt short track built on the sand. Key attractions also include a custom bike show, vendors, art, food, and drinks, all moto centric and all Surfside.
This one-day event will include the best motocross riders on the planet, battling side by side for Straight Rhythm glory on a specially-built dirt motocross track featuring full-size supercross jumps and no turns, parallel to Pacific Coast Highway, alongside the hospitality and perks expected of Red Bull signature events.

"Roland Sands and his team at RSD are definitely thinking outside the box and breaking the mold when it comes to throwing and promoting moto-centric events, racing, and festivals. They're pushing the boundaries and creating new ones, all while providing exciting forms of motorcycle entertainment for the masses-all in an effort to raise awareness and bring different worlds of motorcycling and motorcycle culture together. That, and to have a little fun in the process..."
MOTO CLASSIC BIKE SHOW
No moto-centric event would be complete without a custom bike show. Motorcycling is and has always been a culture of
creativity, engineering, and customization, and provides a forum for the industry’s best and brightest builders to show off their
latest rolling art pieces. The Moto Classic Bike Show will be an exclusive opportunity to pair your business with some of the
scene’s most notable names and extensive exposure on all RSD and attending builder’s websites, blogs, and social channels.
We are currently taking submission to the Moto Classic Bike Show, please email motorcycle description, images and builder info to firstname.lastname@example.org.

ARCHITECTS OF INSPIRATION ART SHOW
The Architects of Inspiration will be a centerpiece of the Moto Beach Classic event. A curated collection of unique installations inspired by moto and surf culture. Initially structured to solely be an art collective, the Architects of Inspiration has grown to be a larger platform that included more creatives, such as live muralist painters and local music gurus. This year, the Architects of Inspiration Art Show will take place on the sand between the Super Hooligan Dirt Track and the Moto Classic Custom Bike Show.
SUPER HOOLIGAN FLAT TRACK RACING
As with any RSD event, the main focus is on motorcycle racing. The Moto Beach Classic serves as the season finale for AMA Super Hooligan National Championship and also offers anyone a chance to race on the short track built on the sand. Past classes include Run What Ya Brung, Desert MX Open, Vintage Air Cooled, Mad Dog Mini and more, offering a ton of fun, regardless of which side of the handlebars you are on.
