The all-day event featured 239 entrants in 18 categories charging up the Dutchmen’s 200-foot hill on various sizes of motorcycles. Contests that drew at lot of attention and boosted attendance were the relatively new women’s classes, the super senior classes and the vintage class. The competition was part of the King of the Hill Championship series.
Organizers look forward to expanding the event. They would add more classes if requests were sufficient.
