9th Annual Steel Stampede thunders into Crooked River Ranch May 2nd and 3rd

Friday, 27 March 2015 14:28

Ten years ago Pete Fisher sat at the Trading Post enjoying his lunch. As his gaze turned to the field a cross the street Pete thought to himself, “Wouldn’t that make a great place for a motorcycle race?”

As a member of the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA), and a motorcycle enthusiast for over 50 years, Pete is well-versed in what makes a good course for vintage motorcycle trials. During the years Pete has been involved with many cycling events, both as an organizer and as a participant. He envisioned the Crooked River Canyon providing both a beautiful backdrop and a challenging course for riders.

Pete’s dream became a reality and this year when the steel machines roll out onto the course, it will mark the ninth running of the annual Crooked River Ranch Steel Stampede. On May 2nd and 3rd, motorcyclists from as far away as Bermuda and Canada, and many of the western states, will once again return to Crooked River Ranch for this highly anticipated event.

New to this year’s event will be a longer trials course going up the canyon wall. And the track will be changed as well. Our Roads Department is already prepping the course. The prestigious Highlander Trophy will once again be awarded to the competitor with the lowest combined score from the trials and the golf tournament, which is held in conjunction with the Steel Stampede.

While Pete is a motorcyclist, he is also a visionary.  All Steel Stampedes have been held for one purpose, to benefit the community. Proceeds from the initial event were earmarked for the Fire Hall with proceeds from subsequent events benefiting the community at large.

Both residents and visitors can enjoy the amenities provided by funds from the Steel Stampede. The restrooms by Lions Memorial Park, the new Visitors Kiosk, the Disc Golf Course and our new bleachers were all purchased with Steel Stampede proceeds.
