Mike Sleeter raced Motocross and Supercross professionally in 2000s, and today he earns a nice living as a test rider for KTM North America. Sleeter is still wicked fast on a dirt bike, and he likes to target a few key races per year to compete at. This year, he’s looking forward to the TransAm Vet Classic, where he will be a top contender in the 30 Pro class.
When the checkered flag flew at last year's Trans Am, we knew that a change needed to be made. Sure, the Spring event was wildly popular with the top talent of amateur riders but after seeing the success of our youth-oriented Mini Major, it was clear that another very different demographic needed some attention. With this in mind, it's time to announce that the 2018 running of the race will be the Trans Am Vet Classic!
There is no denying the importance of the age 25 and older rider in motocross. They are the ones that buy bikes and gear, spend their weekends at the track, and introduce new young riders to the sport we all love and enjoy. So with this in mind, we've created a number of very popular and competitive classes that riders of all skill levels, from Beginner to Expert, will be able to race their friendly rivals in over one long weekend at one of the top tracks in the country, Glen Helen Raceway.
To keep this from being just another day at the track, we have a wide variety of special events and promotions that'll be announced in the coming weeks. For now, have a look at the class list and then sign up for the 2018 Trans Am Vet Classic!
