The N.A.H.A. Pro Hillclimb Comes to Glen Helen Raceway May 21-22

San Bernardino, Calif. - May 17, 2011 -- The 2011 North American Hillclimbers Association brings the oldest of motorcycle sports to America's Playground in Southern California. Glen Helen Raceway will play host to the second and third rounds of this year's cross-country tour Saturday and Sunday, May 21-22.

The Racer X/Malcolm Smith Motorsports/N.A.H.A Pro Hillclimb events always draw a big crowd, and for good reason. These bikes are not typical motocross bikes, they are heavily modified to produce the huge horsepower needed to help their riders conquer the steepest and most treacherous mountainsides. Come to Glen Helen to see the best professional hillclimbers take on 50-foot jumps, motocross-style berms and vertical ledges, all while powering their 200+ horsepower machines up Glen Helen's 500-foot Long Hill.

All new this year at the Glen Helen rounds will be the X Climb event, where two riders will race up the same hill. Along the way these dueling daredevils must tackle two freestyle ramps and a 40-foot cliff. The winner of each race advances to the following round, making this tournament-style drag-race event a must-see.

Along with the nitro-burning mayhem will be live music, a mechanical bull, vendors and refreshments. Tickets are only $15 and include a free pit pass, where fans can check out the insane bikes of pros such as Jason Smith, Cory Erhardt, Harold Waddell, Brandon and Travis Whitlock, and Robie and Bret Peterson. Kids 6 and under are free, so bring the family out for a weekend full of excitement.

Weekend camping is available as well, offering fans the opportunity to stay close to the action all weekend long. Camping will cost $20 for the weekend, with an extra $35 for RV hookups. RV spaces are limited, so contact Glen Helen Raceway at 909-384-9342 for reservations.

Don't miss your chance to see these pro hillclimbers take on the mountains of Glen Helen in the only California stop. For more information visit www.glenhelenhc.com or www.pro-hillclimbers.org.
