Big Nasty Hillclimb
For the first time in Big Nasty history, you won't have to spend $39 to join the AMA! We have partnered with a new insurance company which will not require our riders to be AMA members, and that will take $39 right off of the top of the entry fees for many of you. New entry forms are coming on-line including splitting the 150cc pit bike and CR150F class in two, one for riders 13-younger and one for riders 14-older. Parents requested this change, so we listened and did it. This will help the young kids who own bikes that size and don't want to compete against adults or older teenagers.
Also, for 2009 we have added what we think is a first, a women's pro class. We kept our increasingly popular women's trophy class on Friday night, but we were so impressed with the skill level of the top tier of women last year, that we decided to also offer them a pro class that will run on the big hill on Saturday afternoon. Guys, look out, because the chicks are getting really, really good at hillclimbing.
Jagermeister only chose one Idaho event in 2009 to bring their stage to...the Big Nasty! So, we're adding more bands, and will have live music on both Friday and Saturday evenings featuring Dirty Rooster Lollipop, Abrupt Edge, Aces & Eights, Half the World, and Fifty-Seven Heavy. The awesome Metal Mulisha Freestyle Show returns, but this time it will include the world-famous, one-and-only, Godfather of Freestyle, Mike Metzger, (who also wants to try his hand at competing in the hillclimb). Returning to the freestyle show will also be Chinese X-Game Medalists Justin Homan and Keith Sayers. If you have never seen a motorcycle upside down, 40 feet in the air, you really should.
