“This event is one of my favorite BAMS events that we hold each year as riders come out in full force to help support the charity, which is so near and dear to my heart, combining exercise and fundraising, ” said Clay. “We are so fortunate to have all the support from great corporations, companies and the fans to continue to put this event on year after year and raise money to continue to support MS research and education.”
