Further excitement over the weekend will come from the brand-new Off-Road Show (September 30th to October 2nd), where visitors will find ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles and of course off-road bikes under the same roof. They will get a unique opportunity to discover the latest innovations, receive information on their favourite models, and buy parts, accessories and even vehicles on site.
The all-new 2012 models from the top manufacturers will be there as well, including the entire off-road lineups from Honda and BRP. While touring the various stands and exhibits, fans will also be able to chat with many riders participating in the Supermotocross Monster Energy, not to mention a few celebrities such as legendary motocross racer Jean-Sébastien Roy and musician/show spokesman Jonathan Painchaud.
Want more? You can enter a contest that will reward a thousand lucky folks with the privilege of test-riding dirt bikes, ATVs and UTVs on the track during the final day of the event.
Admission for the Off-Road Show is $12 (free for Supermotocross Monster Energy ticket holders and children 11 and under). Those who attend the show on Friday will receive a $10 discount on Supermotocross Monster Energy tickets.
