A few months ago, owner of The Sturgis Buffalo Chip Rod Woodruff explained: “There has long been a need for a complete motorcycle rally park with free admission that’s easy to get to, provides access to industry displays and vendors and has ample and easily accessed free parking. It’s been planned for years and I am delighted that the Crossroads will be open during the 2012 Sturgis Rally”
You are looking at phase one of this admission-free new 20-acre development named Crossroads with the erection of the over 30 foot tall, over 50,000 lbs all steel (black & silver painted) Big Twin engine sculpture in front of the new 20,000 sq. ft Sturgis Rider Cafe to be fully operational in 3 weeks at the start of the 2012 rally. The Sturgis Rider Cafe will be offering great food, multiple bars, raised viewing decks and marquee live entertainment, amazing Zip Line rides, Wall of Death, Roller Derby, Dual Burnout Pits, Rats Hole and custom bike shows, Bikini Bike Wash, Professional Wrestling, Vietnam Wall War Memorial, Paving The Way exhibit from the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum, The Felid of Flags and a wide array of vendors and interactive displays with plenty of free parking.
