Idaho's Largest Motorcycle Event, the Big Nasty, took another jump in attendance in 2013, with over 800 entries and over 700 camping passes sold. Complete 2013 results are posted below under the 2013 Results button. Please let us know if we owe you a trophy.
The 12th annual Nasty will happen next year on September 12-14, 2014 and will be the biggest and best yet. We are LOVING our new well, punched right at the bottom of the big hill. It is even safe to drink and tastes great. Look for future Big Nasty Hillclimbs to be greener and more dust-free than ever. Maybe we'll even plant some flowers or something...
New, season-opening X-12 Hillclimb:
Yep, the rumors are true and the 2014 hillclimbing season kicks off on April 25-27 with an all-new hillclimb at Snowville, Utah. Where is that? (you say.) Snowville is in the middle of nowhere and middle of everywhere. It is right on the freeway, (I-84) 245 miles southeast from Boise, and 100 miles north of Salt Lake. We are real, real close to turning on the website: www.x12events.com and posting entry forms and on-line registration. This 3-day event will look a lot like the Big Nasty, offering the full gauntlet of pro, semi-pro, altered and stock classes on a cool, new hill. Much more info will be released by mid-February. There will NOT be a World's Steepest held in 2014 (there is a very good chance that it will return in 2015, however). Meanwhile, the 2014 Northwest Hillclimb Series will consist of the X-12 in April, Sunnyside, WA in mid-May and the BIg Nasty in September.
Great Video of the Big Nasty:
Shot at the 2012 Nasty by Michael Jazek, this is one of our favorites. Some of the footage include the amazing snowbikes taking on the Big Nasty Hill. It also features some of the great shots of Heath Frisby led, Monster Energy FX Team and NAHA National Champion Brett Peterson's huge crash during Sunday's King of the Hill event.
