These videos seriously distort how UNBELIEVABLY STEEP some of these hills are. Near vertical in places ... !

Fun to watch, love riding....couldn't pay me enough to do this.

Also an amazing variety of frankenmachines. Some of those things look terrifying.

I believe it's the thought of,...... "39 guys have all tried to make it up this hill.... And every single one of them has crashed......... EXCEPT ME!"

Does soil erosion mean anything to anyone there?

Oh, it's likely not their land.

I disagree. Imo, video doesn't show how steep some of these hills truly are, not the other way around.

It is likely privately owned land, and the landowner was paid well for the use of their land. That was the case at the last M/C hillclimb event I went to.

Interesting sport motocross, this looks like another level of abuse. My relative retired motocross at age 25 as his body pretty destroyed. He made it into top 10 racers on occasion but was private not full timer.

Been there done that. Only we strung bull rope down the mountain with several people on top of mountain holding roap so rider had something to grab to prevent him from falling all the way back down the mountain.


Boy will I be happy when ALL vehicles on public roads are autonomous.
