Extreme Off-Road is a specialized form of racing that tests a rider's skill and their machine's capabilities over the most challenging terrain that each venue has to offer - from agonizing hill climbs, to endless rock fields, log crossings and the worst natural conditions imaginable. The format is wide open for the host organizations to throw as many curve balls at riders as possible. Extreme Off-Road features Le Mans starts, timed sections, GPS navigation, course changes and more, all with the intent on finding the toughest riders in the US and pitting them against one another in extreme battle!
Some of the toughest and most prestigious AMA Extreme Off-Road events are AMA Grand National Championships.
