MAX BMW and the Ascutney Hill Climb - August 25th-26th

The Hill Climb season is well under way! Our last event only had a few motorcycles that entered, but was still a blast. Some of the bikes were faster than cars. Lets see if we can get some more action on bikes this time.

If interested in competeing, shoot me a PM or go through the site posted below. Some of our riders/employees will be there on G450X's, HP2 Enduros, HP2 Megamotos, and possibly some vintage airheads too

From the main event page: http://climbascutney.com/

Spend a weekend in Vermont racing your car or motorcycle up the Ascutney Mountain Auto Road. Time trial your vehicle up 2,300 vertical feet on a twisty 3.7 mile paved surface that has an average grade of 12%, with some areas graded at 19%. Unlike other hillclimbs at Ascutney, we will be running the extended course to the top of the mountain! We have reserved the entire Ascutney State Park Campground for this event and welcome competitors, spectators and volunteers to come spend the weekend. Please follow the links below for details on entering, volunteering, and camping. We hope to see you there!

Below are some pics from our last Okemo II run. Lots of fun can be had, ltos of cool bikes out ripping up the mountain (cages too!), and always a good time hanging out.

Hope to see some of you there! Post up if you think you may join. If you can't ride in the event, it's well worth spectating.

Hillclimb!!

This looks like a blast. Will be there one way or another

Looked over the websites & etc. I have couple of questions/clarifications though & it may be helpful for others too.

Do you have the campground reserved for Friday night through Sunday?
Looks like it will cost $18.00 for a non VT resident to camp.
Is that for each night? & that is for a site that would hold 4 tents & bikes?
Will there be a day fee per person also?
Is it recommended to reserve campsites?
Will there be food & or vendors for spectators?
Are you able to leave & return the campground through out the day & night?
The competitors fee of $160 includes camping & other fees? How about crew members?

Thanks in advance! Hope to see you there!

p.s. PM sent about competing

I will be at Okemo on July 7-8 (have been in touch with Joe), but sadly I can't make this date. Stupid weddings...

All I can tell you is that the last time I was on that road, the Ranger called the cops on me. I thought he was going for his own gun he was so excited. It is a great event you will have a blast. Usual rules I am sure. Oil containment system, safety wire. they will copy someone else's rules most likely.

Nope, it used to be in late May early June IIRC years ago. We used to hike up to the overlook and watch the cars. It is now in August.

http://www.hillclimb.org/rules_regs/rules_regs.htm

Not sure why the clown mentioned containment, none of the pictures above show any but WTFDIK? Been going to the hill climbs with a friend for years, great bunch of people. Never been there with a bike before, just this....

600 hp all wheel drive hill climber

The fact that Max is involved proves how awesome its going to be!

I am.

The lack of published rules is VERY frustrating. I am terrified of showing up and being turned away. However, I have talked to Joe at MaxBMW and he has made it clear that I should be fine. For the record, my bike is a pretty basic TE/SM610, safety wire on the brakes and fluid bolts, but that's it.
