Moto guys, off-road guys, whatever you ride, I got a challenge for you. I want to see you run a hillclimb, yes, that's right, I want you to run a hillclimb. I want you to cut the abilical cord to the track or trail, and try something you never have before. I want you to give it a serious shot and see if you can take it to the top guys in hillclimb, there's a stock length 450 verticross class just for you Moto guys, so let's see how you stack up. Off-road guys, the enduro climb is for you, so let's see how your Endurocross skills combine with your hilllclimb skills.

In both classes you'll be running against only one other person at a time, and all that matters is you get to the top first, what happens in between is up to you. A lot of riders don't consider hillclimb to be a serious discipline, and the number one way to get people convinced is to have them try it for themselves. In order to make it more accessible to the average rider, these two stock length Motoclimb classes have been added, so no need to buy extensions or modify your bike in any way, just run what ya got! Who knows, if it's as easy as it looks to a lot of people you might walk away with some serious cash. . .

Here's the flyer, no excuses for the local guys, let's make this big and show some people what motoclimb is all about! I'd love to see some new guys out there and introduce them to a type of riding that often gets overlooked, so load up your Moto/enduro bike and give it a go.

I'm sure it's about 1000X harder than it looks- and it doesn't look easy.

Any Enduroclimb examples (with man made obstacles) on the net Josh? Do they do this in Europe?

Exactly what I was thinking! If it were easy, everyone would do it.....

That hill didn't look too bad when you first pulled up next to your buddy. Then the first guy who ran it kept getting smaller and smaller as he went up and my "nope-meter" pegged.

That one is atleast forgiving. There are some smaller more technical ones in the back of there and are a real pain in the ass if you don't make it up the first try, which I rarely do lol

The only one I've seen is one done by Redbull (shocking, right?cool ), and it was in South America I think. Here is a quick link to that, which is kind of what inspired the idea.

This is how the course will be lauded out, should make for some awesome bar banging opportunities as well as some good racing all the way up to the top.

For anyone intimidated to give it a try, don't forget there is also the regular 450 verticross, where you won't have logs or tires to contend with. Think of it this way, I'm betting you were a little apprehensive and unsure about getting on a Moto track for the first time, right? Well, imagine if you'd given up before you even tried it, all of us here would have missed out on a lot. There are also amateur stock length classes on Sunday for those who want to try a bit of a tamer hill, and get their feet wet slowly.

As I said, don't write it off, it's something new to try and I'm willing to bet anyone who does will absolutely not regret it.

Damn Josh.....On that exact weekend , I wanted to see if you wanted to hook up at Glen Helen. It'll be my first time to have the chance to ride that track over that weekend.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Holy crap that place looks epic after a rain, awesome video! It's cool to see how different the terrain is from here, we have rocks but nothing like that sticking out of the surface where you have to pick your way around, plus deal with the deep sand, that's a tough combination!

Ah crap, we'll have to make something else work. If you ever pass through and want to ride any of the tracks around here, or get some trail riding in, let me know and I'll make it work.

Yeah it makes for some good riding when it's not 110 degrees out lol. If you guys weren't so far up north from me I'd love to some of the climbs a try, but I'm not very good at them, and the two stroke probably wouldn't work in my favor lol

Challenge accepted! Took the stairs at work today and yes, the climb was harder than expected.

Let me oblige you with some previous races, I'm sure you can see where the crossfit would be beneficial, and don't even try it unless you're tan bro . .





The stock length 450 class in the first video is what people can expect if they decide to give it a go, just with a more traditional hill. If anyone is up for the challenge I'll be more than happy to help them through the process at the races and get a feel for what to expect for the day.

Alright guys, only one week away. Some big name endurocross guys are set to show up and give it a go, including Wally Palmer and Kyle Redmond. There are classes for everyone, from amateur to pro, and hills will be layed out accordingly. Come on Vital, let's see just how torqued your sprocket bolts are, and if you 're as ripped and tan as you claim to be. . .
