On Memorial Day weekend, some of the world's best motorcycle riders will be revving their engines in Sequatchie, Tennessee for the World Observed Trials
It's an event that pits man and machine against mountainous terrain.
The bigger prize may be the multi-million dollar boost to the economy.
For Sequatchie and the surrounding Chattanooga Area, the World Trials Motorcycle event will also be revving up the local economy on Memorial Day weekend.
"We expect somewhere between 8 and ten thousand spectators to show up for it. I think it is five point six million dollars that we anticipate it will bring to this area. We've met with the Chamber of Commerce a couple of times now, and when they found out the economic impact everybody there jumped on the bandwagon," says Charlie Roberts, Technical Manger of the Trials Training Center.
Ryan Young is a six time national trials champion. He says there is nothing like this 640 acre course in the country.
"TTC has everything that the whole country has in one piece of property its an awesome because it has everything, waterfalls, hill climbs dry slippery logs rocks and it is super challenging here."
"It's really great to get to ride here, it allows you to really view the different riding and use the different techniques and it is just a really unique riding area there's nothing like it," adds rider Andrew Putt.
The event will mark the first time in several years that there has been a competition in the U.S.
"It's just like being a mountain goat on a motorcycle.They will take these bikes up over the biggest rocks, you can't even walk over the rocks, you can not even climb up them but these guys are going to fly up the rocks with their motorcycles."
