AMD 2016 World Championship entry forms online now, four-strong 'Team America' headed for INTERMOT in October amdowclogo

The entry forms for the 2016 AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building are now ready online for the second hosting of the event at INTERMOT, Cologne, Germany, Thursday October 6th - Sunday October 9th. AMD Magazine is pleased to announce that Neil "ShowMaster" Blaber will again oversee the staging, with this year's AMD World Championship being the centerpiece of INTERMOT Custom, the show's all new Hall 10 custom motorcycle industry showcase.


Neil has been involved in the AMD World Championship program ever since its inception in 2004 and will be providing competitors with the usual high level of customer service and competition assistance that has always been a hallmark of the AMD World Championship.

This year's class structure features the prestigious FreeStyle Class from which the World Champion is selected by the competitors themselves; plus the always popular Modified Harley-Davidson, Street Performance, Retro and Cafe Racer classes.

This year will see four 'Team America' builders going to Germany to compete at the AMD World Championship.

Following the first annual Championship of the Americas at AIMExpo at Orlando, Florida, in October 2015, the S&S Cycle and Biker's Choice sponsored FreeStyle class winner there, Jeremy Cupp of LC Fabrications, has won an expenses paid trip to take part in the AMD World Championship at INTERMOT this year. He will compete alongside Larry Moore, of Moore's Customs, who won expenses for the trip courtesy of AMD Magazine at the last AMD World Championship held in Sturgis in 2012.

That year Larry was second at Sturgis to Jeremy Cupp, who has kindly agreed to donate his 2012 Championship winner's prize to George Stinsman of Chaos Cycle. The fourth member of 'Team America' 2016 will be Sean Ruddy of Chop Deville, who won his prize at the Harley Museum 110th Anniversary Pro Invite Show.


Commenting on the American presence at this year's AMD World Championship, Bob Kay, US Program Director for the World Championship and V-Twin Director for AIMExpo, said that "our dream to bring some of America's best to Germany for a heads-up custom competition is finally a reality.

"Of course we could have never funded this venture without the help of AMD, the Harley-Davidson Museum and AIMExpo.

Thanks to AIMExpo and the MIC we will now always have a minimum team of two US customizers competing in future AMD World Championships at INTERMOT in Germany, as the winners from the AIMExpo Championship of the Americas FreeStyle class automatically progress forward."
