Perhaps you watched the YouTube videos… Or, maybe you even took a class or purchased a DVD on ‘how to ride like a motorcycle cop.’ Now see many of the best motor-officers and motor-medics on the East Coast -- including Pittsburgh’s finest -- in person at the Mid-Atlantic Police Skills Competition. The event will be held June 19-22 on Art Rooney Avenue, alongside Heinz Field, and features a timed course and an even ‘tighter’ skilled course that’s sure to bring out the best of the best.
See these fantastic riders up close and personal at practice sessions on Wednesday, June 19 and Thursday, June 20. The actual competition is Friday, June 21, finishing with both individual and team events on Saturday, June 22. In addition to the variety of food and beverage establishments already available on the North Shore, enjoy vendors, food trucks, and more.
If you’re looking to take that experience to the next level, Snyder’s Riders is helping to organize experienced motorcyclists to serve as volunteers who will assist with the judging. It’s a great opportunity to be ‘in the mix,’ standing amidst the course set-up, and keeping an eye on any ‘cone violations’ (when an rider knocks a cone down). All volunteers will receive VIP treatment including a limited edition event T-shirt, lunch, and other swag! Training and orientation takes place on Friday with judging on Saturday. Any time you can devote to volunteering is appreciated. If you can only attend Saturday, a special ‘make up’ training session will be held that morning.
BE THERE to see these unbelievable riders do their thing. It’s truly an incredible opportunity to witness just what is possible with training and practice! Email us at SnydersRiders@gmail.com for more information and to receive the full schedule.
