13 February 2000

PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Dual-sport riding may be its own reward, but a chance to win a brand new Suzuki motorcycle and other valuable off-road riding accessories and apparel isn't a bad prospect, either.

Last year, more than 2,700 off-road riding enthusiasts enjoyed the outdoors and were entered to win prizes in the 1999 American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Suzuki National Dual Sport Trail Ride Series. And while 28 lucky series participants were randomly selected as winners, none was luckier than Walter Robles of Reseda, Calif., who won the grand prize 1999 Suzuki DR350SE dual-sport motorcycle valued at $4,599 from Title Sponsor American Suzuki Motor Corp.

Each year, series participants are entered into a year-end drawing for thousands of dollars worth of prizes, including $500 of clothing from Associate Sponsor Moose Racing, gas tanks from Associate Sponsor Clarke Manufacturing, as well as prizes from Kenda Tire, Fox Racing, Motowear International, Chatter Box, Progressive Suspension and PJ1 Lubricants. This year's 20-event series begins May 6-7 in Renfro Valley, Ky. For complete series and contest details, contact the AMA Events & Entertainment Department at (614) 856-1900.
