Meet the Stunters of the XDL Championships

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Mon, Sep 10, 2012 at 12:14 PM

This weekend, the Portland International Raceway will be taken over by the subtly titled MOTORCYCLE MADNESS XDL stunt motorbiking championships Friday and Saturday nights, which actually sounds like a fine way to toast the last days of summer weekends. If you are into this scene (there's a quasi-explanatory video behind the cut), then you may also want to know that See See Motorcycles is getting warmed up early with a meet 'n' greet hosted at the See See coffee/retail/shop compound on Thursday with the star competitors, beer, and a display of drift bikes. They're also threatening to premiere another video from Portland-based moto gear company Icon, which has a pretty good track record in that department. If you've yet to see it, their last video (essentially a really entertaining infomercial without the sales pitch), is worth eight minutes of your life.

Hit the cut for a closer look at the XDL Championships, too.
