The 78th Sturgis Rally is in full swing! That means 10 days of the world’s largest motorcycle event, held every year in Sturgis, South Dakota. The rally draws riders from all over the world, with attendance estimates this year falling around 500,000.
So much is happening at the rally that it’s almost impossible to cover it all. The opening ceremonies kicked off Friday, with appearances from Dana Bowman, live music, races, local rides and a “Street Food Throwdown.”

Races of all types will be held throughout the rally at Jack Pine Gypsies, Black Hills Speedway, Buffalo Chip and the Sturgis Dragaway, and include main events like a pro-am hill climb, American Flat Track racing, AMA Supermoto races and a minibike enduro.
