For those of you motocross enthusiasts who are looking to kick off your celebration of the Toyota Trucks Thunder Valley National a little early, then you are in luck. Tonight you can take in the movie premiere of Carlsbad USGP: 1980 at the Mayan Theatre and then tomorrow, make your way to Sun Enterprises for their Fan Fest.
About Carlsbad USGP: 1980: Produced by Todd Huffman, (Motocross Files), this documentary commemorates the 30th anniversary of an American winning the United States Grand Prix of Motocross for the very first time in history. The film chronicles the early history of the Carlsbad USGP but more importantly shadows the story of Privateer Marty Moates during the 1980 season of the series. In an industry and a race dominated by Europeans, Moates rewrote the history books and stunned the rest of the world when he won that thrilling race. Hosted by Chuck Sun, who won the USGP in 1981, and his Motocross des Nations teammate, Donnie Hansen, the premiere is anticipated to draw in Colorado’s top 50 riders. With the AMA National coinciding this following weekend, many surprise attendances are to be expected. Says Sun, “Denver has always been one of my favorite riding areas having won AMA National events here in the past. As the second American to win the fabled Carlsbad USGP, I really wanted to share this inspirational story with the racing enthusiasts of Colorado.”
The Mayan Theatre is located at 110 North Broadway, Denver, CO 80203.
