Aug 26 @ 1:00 pm – 10:30 pm

Main Event: Saturday: 1 PM – 10:30 PM

Pre event Trophy Hill Climb (8AM at the Main Trailer)

Side-by-Side Under the Lights racing after the Championship Runs

This is a single day of Hill Climbing at BMC. Watch local, Regional and National riders battle it up our Nightmare Hill, which consists of a 2-phase course: first up a steep run with a vertical ledge, then on to the upper mine field roller section to the finish.

This hill challenges pro riders, and spectators enjoy a great show into the night with riding under the lights.

Pre-Party at the Powderhorn Lounge Friday, August 25th

Powderhorn Lounge BillingsPre-Climb get together Friday the 25th at the Powderhorn Lounge. There will be a Calcutta and Free giveaways starting at 7:00 pm, this is always a good time, bring your friends and family.

The term “Calcutta” describes a type of auction-pool wagering that can be applied to our Hill Climb. In golf, a Calcutta is most common at a tournament featuring 4-person teams. In simplest terms, a golf Calcutta works like this:

  • Hill Climb spectators or riders bid, auction style, on a Hill Climb multiple rider team they think will win / be at the top of the Championship
  • Highest bid on the team wins (the highest bidder now “bought” the team for the event)
  • All the money raised through the “auction” goes into the pot.
  • At the end of the tournament, those who “won” the team that then won the tournament get a predetermined payout from the auction pool

Spectators

  • Adults $10, Kids 10 and under Free. Competitor Fees separate.
  • Plenty of parking and a variety of concessions are available and family picnics / tail gates are encouraged
  • Bring your coolers, lawn chairs, canopies, tarp covers, toy haulers, campers, trailers, tailgate set-ups and other outdoor supplies for a wonderful weekend of watching.
  • An area to set up chairs and canopies, and an area for vehicle parking/viewing
  • Loudspeaker System, and tune in your radio to 88.5 FM
