Loudoun MotorSports shutting its doors

After 20 years in business, the owners of Loudoun MotorSports, a landmark local motorcycle dealership, have decided to close shop.

Greg and Elyzabeth "Liff" Voell started Loudoun MotorSports in June 1997 after switching from the careers as an attorney and a sports marketing executive, according to a news release. Greg Voell's passion for motocross and their shared desire to start their own business brought the couple to Leesburg to begin their adventure that became Loudoun MotorSports.

After 20 years, the husband-and-wife team have decided to "move onto a new chapter in their lives," they said. The Voells say they have sold their space on Catoctin Circle, which has been home to the multi-line motorcycle dealership for many years. The couple be liquidating all the assets throughout the summer. Everything in the store will be deeply discounted.

The family-owned business was widely known for its easy-going atmosphere and friendly staff.

"The business success, the challenges, the fun, managing the economical roller-coaster, rebuilding after an arson fire nearly destroyed our original building and ruined a million dollars worth of product, the 'no day is the same as the last' aspects.... it has been one wild ride," Greg and Liff said in a statement.

The Voells have two children -- Hailey, a University of Virginia student, and Drake, who attends Loudoun Valley High School.

Loudoun MotorSports will remain open to the public through June 30.

The Voells thanked customers "for the privilege for being able to be a part of your lives for so long. We have loved that you have felt so comfortable hanging out at Loudoun MotorSports."

I remember when it was a small shop on the other side of Catoctin circle. Sad to see them go.


This is sad to hear.  I remember helping the one weekend when they moved all the inventory from the old store to the current location.  The Leesburg Police were kind enough to shut down Catoctin and my girlfriend and I each road ATVs to the new store as part of the parade of vehicles.  We enjoyed the coffee and donuts and especially the T-shirts they handed out.  That was a fun time.  Good luck on your new adventures.


Bummer! I liked doing business with them. I do wish the Voells the best of luck in their next adventure.
