What’s a Hill Climb, anyway?

Motorcycle Hill Climbs have been a traditional motorcycle race since the early days of two wheeled tom foolery. In most cases, a rider or two will race up a steep, challenging hill in attempts to reach the summit first. Some races are for time, while others are for overall speed and ability to climb the farthest.
