Americade Completes Successful Management of Killington Classic

on Wednesday, 06 April 2016.

Americade Completes Successful Management of Killington Classic Vermont-based event experienced significant development over past 5 years.

Americade's 5 year management contract ended in 2015. The event now returns to the Town of Killington's management.

"6 years ago, the Town asked us to manage and redevelop the Killington Classic," says Christian Dutcher, Americade's Director, "and over the past 5 years, we made substantial changes, resulting in increased attendance, greater industry participation, and the addition of factory demos. A new event HQ was created, additional riding events and entertainment was provided, and the duration of attendee's visits increased. I'm pleased with the event's growth, and perhaps more importantly, the fan base the event developed. I'm looking forward to seeing it continue to grow under the Town's stewardship over the coming years."

Dutcher continued, "I'd like to thank the Killington Classic volunteers, the Town of Killington, The Foundry, the Rutland Chamber, and the event's many other partners, for their enormous help over the past 5 years. In particular, I'd like to thank Seth Webb, the Town's Manager, for all his help and insight."

AMERICADE LAUNCHES A LARGE CHARITY RODEO, “SMOOTHING OUT A ROUGH RIDE”

on Tuesday, 12 May 2015.

Motorcycle Cruiser and Baggers Magazine are Presenting Sponsors

Lake George, NY: Americade has partnered with major industry media brands, Baggers and Motorcycle Cruiser, to launch a Professional Rodeo motorcycle charity event, Wednesday June 3rd, during Americade Week.

Hosted in the covered stadium at the Painted Pony Ranch in Lake Luzurne, NY, the rodeo will feature professional cowboys and cowgirls competing in Bull Riding, Team Roping, Bareback Bronc Riding and more. This will be an adrenaline­-filled night, rain or shine.

“I’m very excited about this partnership, and looking forward to seeing riders and non­riders support this great cause, and enjoy a great show,” said Christian Dutcher, Americade’s Director. “Not all of us were blessed with the opportunity to ride, but this partnership will create an event that will help many disabled folks at the Prospect School. For years we’ve donated the free parking area to the school, and they’ve helped thousands of motorcyclists park their bikes. Now motorcyclists have a chance to give back.”

“Americade is a great institution that represents motorcycling touring at its finest,” says Jordan Mastagni, content director for Baggers and Motorcycle Cruiser. “We’re honored to be part of Americade 2015, and especially this year’s all­new Charity Rodeo in order to bring more awareness to the Prospect School and the exceptional programs that it offers.”

Tickets will be available online at www.paintedponyrodeo.com starting May 7. The charity event is open to the public and is expected to generate thousands of dollars of donations for the Prospect School, a local charity and long time partner of Americade and motorcyclists. The Painted Pony Rodeo takes place during Americade on June 3, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.
