Just letting you folks know that the Leongatha Hill Climb is on this Sunday, June 10. I went last year and had a great time. What other form of motorcycle sport do 99% of the competitors crash out? It's action packed and worth a look. Last year ony one bloke made it to the top. Some blur from the web site... Knox's Hillclimb was established in 1977. This event is a test of skill and horsepower to see how far a rider can make it up the hill and to our knowledge is unique in that it is the only hillclimb to run continuously for so many years in Australia. The event is run on private property which enables unregistered bikes to enter. All competitors must be a current financial member of the Leongatha Motorcycle Club, and have a current MV licence (or purchase a day licence prior to riding). All classes are scored on the distance made up the hill. Modified Bikes are any dirt bike modified from standard, such as an extended swing arm, different motor (not road bike motor), with any frame modification. Super Modified Bikes are motorcycles that have 2 or more cylinders with the motor being from a road bike, with any frame modification. Kevin Cook was a young active member back in the 70's. He shared a love of motorcycles with those he met. Kevin was out driving one day when he run out of petrol. He decided to hitch hike and get some more. He was picked up by a panel van, but unfortunately he never did get the petrol. The panel van rolled and his life came to a tragic end. The KEVIN COOK MEMORIAL CUP was started in his memory in 1977. Many of those attempting to conquer the hill today and be declared the "Outright Winner" will be doing so in his memory Mods, sorry if this is in the wrong section. It's not really a ride/event and it's sorta not pure motorsport. It's more of your eclectic whacky day out with motorcycles.
