2020 rides announced for Beta AMA National Dual Sport Series

Riders can choose from 16 events nationwide and win a Beta motorcycle

PICKERINGTON, Ohio—The schedule for the 2020 Beta AMA National Dual Sport Series, presented be Kenda Tires, features 16 multi-day rides organized by clubs and promoters chartered by the American Motorcyclist Association.

The series has roots dating to 1987, and it attracts both casual riders and racers. It boasts a wide variety of terrain, as well as public and private land.

“The dual sport riding community is very welcoming and spans more activities than just riding,” AMA Recreational Riding Manager Heather Wilson said. “It’s also about hanging out at the campfire and telling stories or discussing your next bike modification or accessory.”

One lucky series participant will win a Beta motorcycle at the end of 2020. All participants in the series are automatically entered to win.

“2020 will be the sixth year for Beta as the title sponsor of the AMA National Dual Sport Series,” said Beta National Marketing Manager Kris Kalar. “The growth of the series has helped with our dual sport sales, while also connecting some of our dealers with motorcycle enthusiasts at the events.”

Kalar said it’s great to see that many of the event organizers help the fight to keep trails open for riding, as restrictions become ever more threatening.

“We look forward to the coming year and hope that series attendees will enjoy the Beta gift kits we put together for them,” Kalar said.

In addition to title sponsor Beta and presenting sponsor Kenda Tires, IMS Products is supporting the series for 2020.
