Yeah that sure does look scary. Check the length of the swing arm and the paddle type rear tyre.

I think this sport actually started in Europe where they also run big bikes up these hills and often have snow spikes in the rear tyre. Scary shit

Saw this Husaberg with two 650 engines next to each other, to do the hill climb. Crazy >:D

When those guys shout "Bike, bike, bike!!!" when the bikes fall it reminds me of this.

1:40 - 1:48 and 2:38 - 2:44 for example ;D

Two strokes rule the MX / modified MX hillclimbs as it's sheer power & power to weight ratio that counts and the power band is not of any interest :o
