Grand Prairie Police Spring Classic Motorcycle Rodeo

Grand Prairie Police Spring Classic Motorcycle Rodeo The Spring Classic Police Motorcycle Training and Skills Competition is recognized as a 501 (c) (3) organization. The money raised from the competition goes to support the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
(10)

The Grand Prairie Police Department Motor Unit is proud to host the Spring Classic Police Motorcycle Training and Skills Competition. This year’s event will take place April 19-22, 2017. Since the first competition in 2011 we have grown from 50 riders to over 100 in 2014. In 2014 we were glad to be able to bring in a new element, hosting the 1st annual Spring Classic Civilian Motorcycle Competition in conjunction with the police competition. This competition allows civilian and police riders to compete on the same courses. The five day event brings together officers from across Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and as far away as Tennessee to take part in valuable training to keep them safe while performing their normal duties. The competition allows the officers to have fun while showing off their riding skills in front of spectators and having an opportunity to interact with the public in a non-enforcement role. Through entry fees, donations made at the event, and our sponsors we are able to make a sizeable contribution to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, and in turn support the Special Olympic Athletes and Special Olympics movement as a whole. Sponsorship opportunities are available to help make this event another huge success.

Due to the increasing safety concerns regarding COVID 19 and the safety implementations our City Officials have put in place, we regret to inform everyone that the 10th Annual Spring Classic has been postponed.
The Grand Prairie Police Department and the Spring Classic Board of Directors are looking at a future date and everyone will be notified once that is determined. We wanted to make everyone aware with as much advanced notice to cancel any plans to attend our Spring Classic while we consider your safety as well as your families safety.
We also want to thank our competitors and sponsors in advance for your understanding and patience as we wait for further guidance from our City, State and Federal Officials. Once we get a better hold of this pandemic, we will have a better idea of a date. We pray everyone stays healthy and takes care of themselves as well as their families.
Regretfully,
Spring Classic Board of Directors

At this time we have no plans to cancel our event due to the corona virus outbreak. We are closely monitoring the situation in Texas and around the US. If anything changes we will post an update here. Our thoughts and prayers go out to anyone affected by COVID-19.

We also want to wish safe travels and good luck to our brothers and sisters competing at the Capital of Texas Police Motorcycle Chute Out this week in Buda, TX. Ride safe and have fun!

UPDATE:

Due to some date and event venue conflicts we had to move the dates for the 10th Annual GP Spring Classic up one week to April 15-18, 2020. It’s going to be another great event with both Police and civilian riders so start getting those training requests in and saving the dates. We look forward to seeing all the old faces as well as many new ones. Registration will be opening soon so continue to follow us on our page for updates.

Every year I have too much pleasure in Grand Prairie Police Spring Classic Motorcycle Rodeo Thank you to the Grand Prairie Police Department organizers and all volunteers (including the judges. Thank you for all Motor Officers for help civilians during the competition. Special thanks to David Magers and Longhorn Harley-Davidson for support me and all competitors. Was my first competition with a new Motorcycle. The course challenges helped me a lot to improve my ride.

Hello, My name is Matthew Johnson and I handle the social media for Homes for Heroes. I'm reaching out to you because we hear all the time from law enforcement members who use our program, "I really wish I had known about this program before." So, we want members of your law enforcement community to know what's available to them. To sum it up, Homes for Heroes helps law enforcement save money on a home. We are a national program with local specialists in the DFW area who would be honored to serve your law enforcement community when they buy, sell or refinance a home. Please visit www.HomesForHeroes.com for more information. Also, our #1 priority is to serve those who selflessly serve others, so please let me know if you have any upcoming community events or initiatives where you may need assistance. I would be happy to share that information with our local specialists. Thank you!
