Joe Biggs, president of Thunder Beach Productions said, “USRiderNews has built The Best of the Beach into a world class bike show and we’re looking forward to another awesome event.”

Day of event registration for the Spring show begins Saturday May 3rd  at 9:00am and continues to 12:00 pm. Due to the heavy rally traffic, participants are encouraged to enter Pier Park from Hwy 98, or Back Beach Road as the locals refer to it and arrive by noon to have time to register their bike and get it set before cut off.  The show’s location has moved to the Main Street in the middle of Pier Park.

The show is sanctioned by Thunder Beach and is peer judged by the participants.  Cochran said peer judging is new this year.  “Each participant will choose the class that best suits their bike based on the criteria we setup.  Then they judge the other bikes in their class and choose one bike from all entries to be the Best of Show.  The only restriction is they cannot vote for their own bike.”

Due to the large number of entries, and the time constraints, judging begins at 12 noon.   All bikes must be able to be started to be eligible for prizes.

Kuryakyn, Custom Dynamics, Jireh Cycles, HHI, RC Components,  Renegade Wheels.    Best Western awards $50 and $25 gift cards to 2nd and 3rd place winners in each class.  Wizards Products provides FREE cleaning products to every bike entered in the show (valued $20)   (subject to change without notice)
