The AMA just announced their 2018 dual sport series schedule with a total of 17 events starting April 14 in Bybee, Tennessee. The two-day events give dual sport riders an opportunity to test their skills and mettle. And while adventure bike riders can enter, the AMA is actually steering them to their KTM National Adventure Riding Series , given the dual sport events are all single track and the opportunities for minor to epic spills are abundant. Good news is that series is run at the same locations and on the same dates.
AMA membership is required for both of these national-level events. A one-event pass will set you back $20 (only available for purchase at the event) or a full AMA membership for $49 (online or at the event).
