Thunder Valley National Motocross

701 S Rooney Rd. Morrison, CO 80465

Jun 01 2019 - Jun 01 2019

Rent an RV

Motocross is a great event for everyone! The thrills, the spills, the noise, the dirt...it all makes for an exhilarating day no one will soon forget.  And since motocross racing is all outdoors, you’ll get to spend a day outside watching racers do some amazing tricks, jumps, bumps, and turns... and having a blast at the same time.

ON-SITE AMENITIES

There are quite a few amenities for racegoers! The grounds have open-air festival seating, with a handicapped viewing area and covered Super Ticket Seating and VIP Viewing Areas. There is also infield track viewing via two track tunnels. There’s nearly 100% track viewing from a number of vantage points, an interactive Sponsor Village, concessions, a baby changing station, Jumbotron viewing, and free motorcycle parking with a gear check. You can find more information here

LINEUP

The full schedule for the 2019 Thunder Valley National can be found here

Thunder Valley, just a short drive from downtown Denver, has been hosting races for less than 15 years. At first, riders and mechanics struggled with the altitude and summer heat, which made their motorcycle fuel actually boil, as well as being uncomfortable. A few years later, they began hosting races at night. This year, they are going back to daytime races, but thanks to an early June date, heat shouldn’t be a problem.

RVING AT THE EVENT

RV camping is a great way to experience a motocross event! There is dry RV camping available for the Thunder Valley National, and it’s a wonderfully convenient way to attend races. You can watch racing during the day, and head back to your RV at any point to grab a snack, cool off, or take a nap. You can choose between Fan Camping and Preferred Camping, which is closer to the track. Find out more information about camping at Thunder Valley here
