The country’s best amateur motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle hillclimbers will head to Bay City, Wis., Aug. 15-17 for the 2014 AMA Hillclimb Grand Championship, hosted this year by the Valley Springs Motorcycle Club.

Ken Saillant (AMA Track Racing Manager) says: “Who hasn’t sat on their dirtbike or ATV, stared at a long, gnarly hill and said to themselves, ‘I can make that!’

“There’s something about hillclimbing that challenges all of us who have a competitive spirit. Hundreds of amateur racers will put that daring spirit on full display this August when the best motorcycle and ATV hillclimbers meet the challenge of the historic hill in Bay City, Wis.”

The Bay City, Wis., hillclimb was brought back in 2012 after a 26-year layoff, the last time the location held the AMA Hillclimb Grand Championship. The hosting club, the Valley Springs Motorcycle Club, has put in a lot of effort to revitalize the hill.

Mike Bronk (President of the Valley Springs Motorcycle Club) says: “The AMA Hillclimb Grand Championship coming to the legendary 500-foot hill at Bay City, Wis., will bring racers from all over the United States.

“Spectators will see classes ranging from kids’ minibikes to open-class monsters with ground-shaking power, racing up the hill for the fastest time.”

The best racers in the most-competitive classes will compete for the AMA Hillclimber of the Year Award and the AMA ATV Hillclimber of the Year Award. Other special awards will acknowledge standout riders in other categories.

The family-friendly event will feature concessions and souvenirs as well as all-day racing. For more information about the area and specific directions to the hill, visit
