We have uploaded our very first video, which is a High Definition Virtual Walk-Thru. Our video takes you around the grounds to see some of our attractions like the Reptile Lagoon, and into our shops to see some of our kitschy souvenirs.It showcases all the newly renovated and repainted areas that we’ve been working very hard on for the last year. You will find new coats of paint on all our buildings and statues, along with new neon and LED signs. Our hotel rooms have also been updated as well, and Camp Pedro is looking fresh too. If you haven’t stopped by to see Pedro lately, we think you will be very pleased with our shiny new looks. Give Pedro a ‘thumbs up’ on the video and don’t forget to subscribe to be notified when we have a new videos on our South of the Border Youtube Channel.

South of the Border MX Training Facility is Pedro’s Newest Attraction!

Monday, April 16th, 2012

South of the Border MXSouth of the Border MX Training Facility is the newest attraction to join the South of the Border family of companies in Hamer, SC. These tracks are located on the north side of South of the Border complex behind Camp Pedro in our spacious wide-open fields. No expense was spared to make this attraction a world-class motocross training facility for everyone from beginner to pro.

South of the Border MX offers 3 different specially designed and carefully constructed motocross tracks that rival any facility in the nation and a smaller training track that is perfect for those just learning to ride motocross bikes.

The 1.4 mile outdoor MX track features all of the conditions and obstacles a rider will see at the amateur national Motocross tracks. The clay-based soil, with sand and topsoil mixed in, forms the deep ruts and bumps motocross riders need to train on to prepare for the conditions they will face at tracks like Loretta Lynn’s, The Mini Olympics and the AMA Outdoor Nationals.

The next track is a full-on Supercross track that replicates the conditions and obstacles found in the stadiums where AMA Supercross races are held. This track is for riders holding an AMA Professional license, and those pros  can train on our pro-level Supercross track.

The SOBMX Arenacross track was designed to be an exact replica of the tracks in arenas holding AMA Arenacross races. This packed red clay track will have you ready for the stadiums in no time sharing the podium with Chad Cook and all the other big names.

In addition to the outdoor MX, SX and AX tracks the 1.1-mile Skills Development Track features rutted turns, bermed turns, flat turns, a roller section, jumps, and a set of whoops. It is perfect for developing the skills needed to become a motocross champion.

 South of the Border MX

South of the Border MX is much more than a collection of places to ride. It’s also a training facility with some of the best instructors around to help you learn how to be a motocross rider, or how to take your skills to the top level in the sport. Our Training Packages are set up with the goal of advancing our riders to the next class and making you a championship rider. We believe that SOBMX offers a much better package of amenities than any other motocross training facility in America. Things like a gym, pool, restaurants, bike shop, arcades and shops allow for a much more pleasant and convenient training experience. You aren’t stuck in a ratty cabin out in the backwoods; you are right beside one of America’s top tourist destinations and this allows your down time be productive and fun.
