Matt will enter it. But he will be doing A LOT of riding this year with the new qualifying format.

King of The Motos announces a new three-challenge format for the 2014 race to be held February 1st and 2nd in Johnson Valley, California as part of the King of the Hammers (KOH) week-long event. In keeping with his tradition of designing cutting-edge, extreme races, KOH founder, Dave Cole and King of the Motos director, Jimmy Lewis have collaborated to bring a more exciting race format to one of the most diverse motorcycle survival races in the world, the 2014 King of the Motos.

After reviewing the success of the last two Motos races, the decision was made to add some of the exciting qualifying and spectator friendly-elements of the original King of The Hammers race to the Motos race for 2014. The changes for 2014 will include a time trial/qualifying event on Saturday, February 1st and a two-stage race on Sunday, February 2nd.

Saturday’s qualifying event will serve two purposes. First, it will determine the starting order for the morning stage on Sunday with the fastest qualifiers from Saturday starting in the the front on Sunday morning. Secondly, Riders who have not pre-qualified for King of the Motos can earn a spot with a fast qualifying time on Saturday. The number of riders that will qualify on Saturday has yet to be determined. Saturday’s qualifying rounds will take place near Hammertown for easy access for on-site spectators. They will also be broadcast over the jumbotron and streamed live to the Internet.

Sunday’s King of the Motos race will be a two-stage format this year. The morning stage will be very similar to the speed and flow of last year’s course with extremely fast desert sections and technical, but not impossible, rock sections. Racers who did not qualify in Saturday’s qualifier will be given another chance to qualify into the main event in this morning stage. Riders will start two at a time and will be timed on a course that is expected to be 40-50 miles in distance. All riders, whether pre-qualified or not, will be required to complete the morning course in a given period of time in order to compete in the afternoon stage. Riders that do not finish in the allotted time will be done for the day.

The King of the Motos main event will take place Sunday afternoon. Only registered racers will be allowed to work on their bikes between the morning and afternoon races. No outside assistance will be allowed. The main event will feature the now infamous goat hill land rush start and will incorporate the most difficult trails in Johnson Valley. The winner will be the rider who successfully completes both of Sunday’s stages in the least amount of combined time.

KOM racers will again be navigating the course mostly by GPS and limited markings. A list of pre-qualified racers will be released soon based on performances in other extreme enduro events. Pre-qualification only means there is a spot reserved in the final race. Racers will still have to complete and finish the Sunday morning stage before the cut-off time in order to start the main event Sunday afternoon.
