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...
Nope, they weren't hurt at the Big Nasty, (both of these hillclimb heroes were hurt riding MX) but they ARE hurt and always apprecaite hearing from people. Omaha, Nebraska's Harold Waddell wadded up pretty hard in late-September, with two, broken femurs and a host of other injuries. You can say "hey" to Harold on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Harold-Waddell/188575751165618.
David LaValley, from Portland, Oregon, also sustained a broken femur and wrist and other painful injuries about two weeks before Harold. You can reach out to David at: email@example.com.
Both of these great riders have gone through multiple surgeries and are in a lot of pain, but both of them are young and tough and are expected to make complete recoveries and return to hillclimbing in the future. We aren't going to slag on MX, it is an awesome sport and an awesome way to train and improve skills, but be careful out there, and parents......hillclimbing is pretty darned safe. We have only ever had two riders injured at the Big Nasty since it started in 2001, and both of them made a complete recovery. Since there are no 100 foot triples, or other riders to land on you, or run over you, and our catchers work to catch you and your bike, injuries on the hill are extremely rare. Just sayin........
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.
