PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has announced
that AMA Travel will offer motorcycle-racing enthusiasts four more spectator
excursions in 2002.

Laguna Seca Superbike, July 12 - 14: Spectacular Monterey, California is the
setting for the world's ultimate road-racing battles. Riders from the AMA Chevy
Trucks U.S. Superbike Championship and SBK Superbike World Championship will
clash at Laguna Seca Raceway for a spot on the podium and global bragging

The Springfield Mile, August 31 - September 2: For flat-track fans, mentioning
of Labor Day weekend and the Illinois State Fairgrounds conjures images of their
favorite racers locking handlebars on the dirt oval, spending as much time
sliding sideways as roaring straight ahead. It's easy to see why The Springfield
Mile is one of the most popular events on the AMA Progressive Insurance U.S.
Flat Track Championship circuit.

The International Six-Day Enduro, September 17 - 30, & the Trial des Nations,
September 24 - October 1: These two events -- the grueling ISDE in the Czech
Republic and the ultra-technical Trials des Nations in Portugal -- are the
ultimate tests for competitors, and AMA Travel's Team USA excursions are the
ultimate blend of international travel and exciting competition.

Domestic packages include accommodations, track credentials, and exclusive AMA
Pro Racing pit and paddock tours. International packages include air,
accommodations, meals, rental car, and official Team USA commemorative jacket.

Availability is limited. For more information and reservations, contact AMA
Travel at 800-AMA-JOIN, ext. 1196 or 1190 or click on

AMA Travel is the only year-'round U.S. provider of all-inclusive
motorcycle-racing excursions for spectators. AMA Travel excursions previously
offered in 2002 included Daytona Bike Week and four AMA EA Sports Supercross
Series packages.
