The 13th Annual POW*MIA Motorcycle Rodeo will be held on Saturday, July 27, 2013, at the Bannock County Fairgrounds beginning immediately following our “Tribute Ceremony”. This rodeo is sponsored by Lithia Hyundai Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Pocatello.
The Motorcycle Rodeo is much like the livestock rodeos we are all familiar with, however, all events are competed in on motorcycles. We call them our “Iron Horses”. The events are held in a two part format, with the first being the solo rides. The solo events are the Slow Race, Keg Push and the Barrel (Clover Leaf) race. The second part of the rodeo will be two up on a bike and competing in, the Give & Take, Honey I’m Home, Weenie Bite, Balloon Toss and the famous Potato Haystack event. Come on, grab a partner and join the fun!! Prize money of $2,000 will be awarded with 1st place receiving $800, 2nd place $600 and 3rd place and $200 going to the “Sportsmanship Award”. All competitors are talented athletes on two wheels.
