Endurance Sport-Touring Association Kick Starts Season March 26-29 in Temecula

As Ducati North America rolls out the new Multistrada 1200, the Motomarathon Association will put the new king of sport-touring muscle through its paces during the Southern California Motomarathon, March 26-29. Kicking off the second season of the national motorcycle endurance series, the four-day ride loops out of Temecula, with routes kept secret until the night before each ride.

Motorcyclist Magazine’s Brian Catterson, Motomarathon Association Routemasters John Metzger and Paul DiMarchi, along with rumored celebrity Ducatisti, will wrangle the current stable of Ducati test bikes including the Hypermotard and Streetfighter through the So Cal hills on routes ranging from Tecate to Big Bear.

“After being locked in Rocky Mountain winter, we’re ready to get down on the twisties of San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties,” said Metzger. “Routemaster Tom Roach of Palm Springs Harley-Davidson led us through these incredible routes during our December recon ride, averaging 300 mile days over the most technical – and hard to navigate – pavement in sunny California.”

The Motomarathon Association runs its annual series of four-day rides over the best roads and through the best scenery in the country. Each rider’s route completion is verified at day’s end through self-recorded checkpoints using digital or cell phone cameras. “The format has struck a nerve with today’s sport-touring and long-distance riders, and with Motomarathon Association sponsors Ducati North America (bikes), Aerostich (clothing) and Wolfman (luggage),” said Metzger.

“The new Ducati Multistrada 1200 is a perfect fit for these events,” said Michael Lock, CEO of Ducati North America. “We’re proud to support the Motomarathon, and we’re very excited to work with the promoters to elevate the highest form of sport-touring."
