Championship of the Americas at AIMExpo, Columbus, Ohio, September 21-24

All ‘Builders’ invited to enter to win a trip to the AMD World Championship in 2018

Registration is now open for the Championship of the Americas (COTA) at the 5th annual AIMExpo in September – a year that is likely to see a huge V-twin dealer and consumer attendance as a result of the move to the Midwest and decision by both Indian Motorcycle and Harley-Davidson to become exhibitors.

In addition to all the great prizes and the excellent industry network opportunities, the winner of the FreeStyle class gets $7,500 in expenses to ship him and his bike to Cologne, Germany, for the 2018 (October) AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building at the prestigious ‘INTERMOT Customized’ Expo.

The Championship of the Americas is the only official AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building affiliate in the Americas.

Staged during the INTERMOT expo, arguably the most important motorcycle industry exhibition in the world, the winner gets the VIP treatment as a member of ‘TEAM USA’ and of the COTA/AMD crew at the event and a shot at bringing home the ultimate accolade as World Champion Custom Bike Builder.

The AMD World Championship at ‘INTERMOT Customized’ is estimated to have been viewed by over 160,000 show visitors; INTERMOT regularly attracts over 210,000 industry and consumer visitors from all over Germany, Europe and worldwide – some 116 countries in 2016.

The Championship of the Americas is based on AMD World Championship rules. There are 4 classes: FreeStyle, Retro Custom, Street Custom and Performance Custom, which provide different platforms for builders to decide the style and brand to design their entry around.
