Great fun to watch, not sure I'd want to put my body through that :156: I've broken enough in my life!

So, has anyone actually made it to the top?

You sort of wonder why they were not leaning more forward, when they got to the bumpy part. Not easy keeping speed up, especially with that first rock lifting the front.

Could I have ,made it up there when I was a young stupid teen? No way. The guys trying my natural line choice (between the rocks) did worse  :087:

Used to go to those hillclimbs back in the 70's in Massachusetts.
The (highly) modified Bonnevilles made it up the most consistently.

The ride may be fun, but in the great scheme of things, it really is the destination that counts.
