LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Jan. 19, 2024) – Some of the greatest names in motorcycling racing from motocross, desert, drag racing and extreme sports have joined an illustrious group of two-wheel legends and will be inducted in the 2024 “Hot Shoe” Hall of Fame Museum when the popular 2024 “Hot Shoe” Hall of Rand Motorcycle Industry Celebration takes place on Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Las Vegas’ Notoriety Theatre on the famed Las Vegas Fremont Street Experience (450 E. Fremont St., 3rd Floor).  The event is free to attendees.

More than 70 competitors and motorcycle icons will be added to some 350 Hall of Fame inductees when the highly successful January 27 event presents his fourth celebration to honor many of the sport’s legends in a popular and casual presentation beginning at 6 p.m. PST. 

Among the honorees will be former Motocross and Supercross champion Donnie Hansen, Desert superstars Kurt Caselli, Larry Roeseler and Toby Price, Drag Racing legend Russ Collins and Extreme record holder Robbie Maddison as well as many other inductees in a special presentation hosted by famed motorcycle announcers Terry “Ike” Clanton and Jerry Bernardo. 

Hansen, a Southern California motocross star as a teenager, became a Honda factory racer and captured the 1982 AMA Motocross and Supercross championships among other titles during his impressive career including battling some of the greatest motocross racer ever. After a career-ending injury, Donnie began a successful Pro Motocross school. 

Caselli, who was killed while leading the 2013 SCORE Baja 1000, was a three-time AMA Hare & Hound National Champion and the 2007 AMA Sportsman of the Year. Kurt won three titles in the World Off Road Championship Series, two stages in the 2013 Dakar Rally, the 2013 Desafio Ruta Rally and captured multiple International Six Days Enduro medals. The Kurt Caselli Foundation's focus is the safety of riders and racers in the off-road motorcycling industry.
Roeseler, a Baja legend, has won the prestigious Baja 1000 desert race a record 13 times, the most of any competitor since the race's inception in 1967. His victories made him one of the most accomplished multi discipline desert racers in off-road racing history. Roeseler began his racing career on two wheels, racing off-road motorcycles to numerous victories before switching to four wheels. He won the Baja 1000 ten times on motorcycles and three more times driving in the open-wheel and Trophy Truck classes for a record 13 Overall Baja 1000 Wins. He was also a successful motorcycle enduro competitor, winning 10 gold medals in the International Six Days Enduro. 

Price, the Australia native, captured the Australian Off Road Championship inn 2009 and then won the Australian Four-Day Enduro as well the Finke Desert Race in his first try. He went on to win the Finke Desert Race an additional five times. He was the first competitor to the Finke Desert Race on a motorcycle and in a truck. He has now won the Finke event nine times. In 2016, Toby won the famed Daker Rally plus the 2019 Dakar Rally (despite riding with a broken wrist) and the 2018 FIM World Rally Championship.

Collins moved to Southern California and began racing motorcycles including setting records with the legendary CB750. He debuted the revolutionary three-engine which recorded the first seven-second in a quarter mile run in the 1973 NHRA Supernationals. Owning RC Engineering, Russ built and race the famed “Sorcerer” which featured dual Honda 1000cc engines and recording a 7.30, 199.5 m.p.h. run. Collins continued to compete in motorcycle drag racing into the 1980s and then Bill Miller’s Top Fuel dragster in the 1990s. 

Maddison, a world renowned FMX and stunt performer, has set numerous world records including the jump over the Corinth Canal in Greece and won the Gold Medal at the X Games held at Australia's Wonderland after completing 13 back flips. In 2011, “Maddo” attempted to jump 400 feet across San Diego Bay as part of Red Bull New Year No Limits. After landing over 391 ft in practice, he landed shy of the 400 feet goal on the night due to the fog, damp conditions and reduced traction, landing 378 ft, 9 inches. Robbie was the motorbike stunt double for James Bond actor Daniel Craig in the Bond movie Skyfall. He went on to receive a Screen Actors Guild Award for best stunt ensemble. He also took the Taurus World Stunt Award for "best stunt with a vehicle."

“Our ‘Hot Shoe’ Hall of Fame is open to all motorcycle legends in numerous forms of two-wheel competition as well as icons in the industry,” said Gene Woods, founder and curator of the “Hot Shoe “Hall of Fame and Museum at Las Vegas’ Fremont Street. “And we are proud to induct a large number from all of those unique disciplines as shown with this list of great performers.

Over 70 new inductees will be honored at the Jan. 27 Las Vegas affair as part of the 2024 class for the “Hot Shoe” Hall of Fame and Motorcycle Celebration in the popular “meet and greet” event at 6 p.m.
