Mammoth Motocross Event

Mammoth Motocross 2017

Mammoth Motocross is June 16 - 25. It is always the 3rd and 4th weeks of June. Tucked at the base of the Sierra Mountains, Mammoth Resort in conjunction with the USFS creates this one of a kind event. It is a sport for racers and spectators as it is truly a great week of fun at the track, and partying in the town. Every year on the closing weekend, there is a big party to celebrate the winners. "Moti-Gras" in the Mammoth Village has become legendary for it's fun mini motocross races and free concerts. Be sure to check out what is happening

Motocross Events are open to the public and spectators are welcome to come, take pictures and shoot the event. We love it when you send us great shots. There are different qualifying events throughout the season, and this is the culmination of the best riders in California and on the circuit.

What to bring: sunscreen and lawn chair, your camera, and enthusiasm. Spectator tickets available on-site or at the Adventure Center window or the Ski Area.

History of the Motorcross Event

Back in 1968 Don Rake and some friends decided to put on a motocross in Mammoth Lakes, California. They built a world-class track 8,000 feet up in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. Dave McCoy came along and offered the backing of his Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and the rest is history. Dave has always been a fan of Motocross and has put a great deal of support behind the Mammoth Motocross events. Mr. McCoy is also a rider.

Every summer racers have flocked to Mammoth Mountain for this classic event. It is the oldest continuous running motocross in the USA. The track has changed a little over the years, but the fun hasn't. Many of the top racers in the world have honed their skills at this event. There have been some epic battles over the years and many racers have made a name for themselves on this track. Riders like Ricky Carmichael, Jeremy McGrath, Rick Johnson, Johnny O'Mara, Broc Glover, Donny Schmitt, Steve Lamson, Gary Jones, Kevin Windham, David Bailey, Jeff Ward, Ron Lechien, Bob Hannah, James Stewart, Mike Bell, Donny Hansen and many more. It also become one of the major amateur events in the country as well. You can see the factory riders of tomorrow racing in the mini classes at Mammoth today.

Getting to the Track

Once in Mammoth, The Motocross track is located off Sherwin Creek Road, about two miles from the intersection of Old Mammoth Road. Spectators please note that there is a mandatory shuttle for entry to the track--look for parking signs and enjoy the ride! Mammoth Motocross Track Map

Lodging for the Mammoth Motocross event is provided by City Concierge. We can have a complete line of condominium accommodations which allow motocross trailers (for those pulling one) along with ticket information. Most participants prefer to stay close to the track and we can help with accommodations that will hold your trailer, or bikes securely as not all complexes can accommodate a car-trailer set up. For the spectators, we can help you get in the heart of it all!

The motocross event is held the same time every year. So if you miss it this year, we'll see you starting around the 3rd week of June! Vroom!

Mammoth Motocross Photos

Mammoth Lakes puts on a great show with the motocross each year. The track is set against the Sherwin Mountains on the south side of Mammoth Lakes. Just follow Old Mammoth Road and before the street bends you'll want to head toward the stables and then out to the track. These are photos from past years that our clients have sent us. We love family photos, so do send us yours if you can. You can get more information on the Mammoth Motocross event and special deals on event lodging from us, just by asking!
