    AMA Hall Of Famer Gavin Trippe, R.I.P.

    PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association offers its condolences to the family and friends of AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame inductee Gavin Trippe, who passed away July 2 at the age of 78. Mr. Trippe is perhaps best remembered for his involvement in 1979 with ABC Sports in creating and promoting "Superbikers" for the television network's Wide World of Sports. "Superbikers" was the first motorcycle competition to bring together the stars of various specialties of racing to compete head to head on such a prominent stage.
