Mayor Mark Carstensen tells the media that it's "the major leagues" of marketing.

Legends Sales & Marketing vice president John Alper says the company sees enormous potential in working with the South Dakota community that hosts the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the largest motorcycle rally in the nation.

The city's previous sponsoring agent was Motoring USA. That contract was not renewed after last year's rally.
