Empire State MM Adds New Satellite Start from Western NY

August 13th, 2012 5:54pm - Posted By: John and Caty Metzger


The 2012 Empire State Motomarathon, set for September 13-16, will start concurrently in not one but two cities: Fishkill, NY and Macedon, NY. The newly added satellite start will open the long-distance, endurance motorcycle-riding event to include riders not just from downstate but also from the Western New York Area.

The satellite start will begin From Filer's Powersports, in Macedon, NY. Shawn Pearsall, a veteran Motomarathoner, will be Routemaster for the group from Macedon. The main start will be led by Routemaster Joe Majsak from the Quality Inn & Suites in Fishkill, NY. The two groups will sync up on Day 1 and then ride Days 2 & 3 together. On Day 4 riders will return to their respective cities.

"We are piloting the satellite-start at the Empire State Motomarathon and we are very excited about having another city involved. Traditionally we have started and stopped on Days One and Four in the same, one location for this type of ride. A satellite start gives riders, who live in cities that are distant from the main start/stop point, a chance to join the Motomarathon route from their remote city while earning the same number of checkpoints," said Motomarathon Founder John Metzger.

Colorado Motomarathon is ON; Wisconsin Motomarathon is OFF

Colorado MM is ON -- Despite the fires, the July 27-30 Colorado Motomarathon is still a go, and will be looping out of Boulder and Mike's Motorcycle each day. The burn areas are a site to see, and we will try to include some of those on our routes depending on conditions and closures. It has been an unusually HOT summer already, so bring your mesh along with the electric vest!

WISCONSIN MM IS OFF -- Due to logistical constraints, the Wisconsin Motomarathon that was scheduled for Oct. 4-7 is postponed and may be rescheduled next year.

New England MM -- The NE MM was a big success and a good time for all, and pushed the grand total of lifetime Motomarathoners to over 200 riders since the Association was founded in 2009. Scenery and routes were fabulous thanks to Routemaster Daniel Monteiro and his team. Congratulations to Halo Award Winner (and safe rider) Lauren Secular, who won a Colorado Ski condo stay at Mountainside at Sol Vista, generously donated by Paul DiMarchi. Thanks also to sponsors Twisted Throttle, European Cycle Sports and The Birchbend Motolodge.
