celebrating 40+ years of motorcycling

The Motorcycle Olympics

I’m not claiming to be the instigator of this idea, but I did tidy it up and add the details.

Since the Olympics are now over, I am proposing the Motorcycle Olympics as a viable (and much more entertaining) alternative.

The World MotOlympics.

Would include a World Championship round (or a stand-alone event, doesn’t matter) of the following motorcycle disciplines.

MotoGp
WSBK
WSS
World Endurance Road Racing.
World ROAD Racing (on public streets)
Speedway
Trials, both outdoor and indoor
Enduro
MotoX
Supercross
Stunting
Ice Racing (perhaps better kept for the Winter MotOlympics)
Supermotard
Hillclimb
Freestyle MotoX
Short Circuit
Where appropriate, sidecar events of these as well
Motorcycle Soccer

PLUS, where appropriate, Junior versions of these classes.

All of these events would take place, as the Olympics do, in one city, or metropolitan area and would be organised in such a way as to allow spectators to take in all of their favourite events without having clashes. Now if that isn’t the recipe for the best 2 weeks of sporting exhilaration, I don’t know what is.
