Date set for Women's Sportbike Rally

Fourth annual event to be held at Deals Gap

By Staff, Oct. 08, 2008
The Schampa Women's Sportbike Rally IV is scheduled to take place September 11-13, 2009. Although typically held the weekend prior to Labor Day, the date was moved to accommodate participants who plan to attend the AMA Women's International Motorcycle Conference on August 19-22 and the Indianapolis MotoGP being held on August 29-30.

Though the date may have changed, the traditional features of the rally continue with plans to keep elements fresh and entertaining each year.

The rally will return to the Great Smoky Mountains headquartered at Fontana Village Resort in Fontana Dam, N.C. just ten miles south of the famed Deals Gap. The rally has called Fontana home since the first event in 2006 due to the fantastic accommodations and beautiful mountain scenery with plenty of curvy roads, including the 318 turns in 11 miles of "The Dragon."

All female sportbike riding groups, individual sportbike riding women and their guests of all riding levels are welcome to participate in the weekend, featuring group and self-guided rides, opportunities to meet amazing new people from all across the country and enjoy post-ride festivities with plenty of surprises built in.

All net proceeds from the rally are donated to the Tiffany Weirbach "Sportbikegirl" Melanoma Foundation, a foundation created in memory of the original Sportbikegirl who succumbed to the disease in 2001. Tiffany created the website  which, to this day, continues to inspire women to start riding sportbikes and encourages others to enjoy riding safe and smart.

Participants may begin reserving their accommodations at Fontana Village Resort by calling (800) 849-2258. Be sure to ask for the Women's Sportbike Rally rate.
