Long-Distance Motorcyclists Get Set for Colorado Motomarathon.

First Full Season Culminates September 17-20

BOULDER, Colo. -- The Motomarathon Association will culminate its first full season September 17-20 with the fourth and final event of 2010. The Colorado Motomarathon features four long days of motorcycle sport-touring looping out of Boulder, with routes held secret until the night before each day's ride. Participants will attempt to complete a series of self-recorded check-points using digital cameras as they ride an average of 400 miles each day through some of Colorado's most scenic mountain terrain.

Sponsored by Butler Motorcycle Maps (www.butlermaps.com), the Colorado Motomarathon will highlight some of the best, and often hidden back roads that have been carefully researched and mapped by the Butler Routemasters.

"The Motomarathon format has struck a nerve with today's sport-touring and long-distance riders, as well as with our 2010 season sponsors Ducati North America (bikes), Aerostich (clothing) and Wolfman (luggage)," said Motomarathon Founder John Metzger. "We welcome Butler Maps as our event sponsor, and look forward to their interpretative routing of some of the state's best roads."

The ride starts and ends each day at Basta Pizzeria in Boulder, culminating with an Awards Dinner on Monday evening, September 20th. Day 1 routes will be handed out at 7:00 p.m. Thursday night (Sept. 16) and the next morning at 7:00 a.m. and follow the same schedule each day.

"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 promote this highest form of sport-touring."
