No Sturgis bike rally coming in 2013

February 14, 2013

Representatives from the city of Sturgis and the Sturgis South Bike Rally Board confirmed Thursday that plans for a 2013 Sturgis motorcycle rally have been canceled, ending negotiations between the city and motorcycle rally boards for the year.
The Sturgis Board of Aldermen had planned a workshop Tuesday to develop a counterproposal to the bike rally board's proposed financial agreement with the city for the 2013 rally. Sturgis Mayor Walter Turner said only two aldermen — James Eric Jackson and Mike Collins — came to the workshop, preventing them from drafting the counterproposal until the city board's next meeting in March.
Rally board president Donny Hanson said the rally board needed the counterproposal by the end of February to adequately prepare for a rally in August.
"The rally has been canceled due to the lack of a proposal from the town," Hanson said. "We are sitting back and waiting to see what the election holds and see if there is any future for the rally."
