The North American Hillcimbers Association announced its 2006 schedule for amateur and pro riders. This is the most-prestigious series in the world, and features stars like Travis Whitlock, Dusty Beer, Jason Smith, Bret and Robie Peterson, Harold Waddell, and Dave Watson. The riders compete on exotic custom-build "works" bikes, burning methanol, nitro methane and nitrous oxide, with some producing in excess of 200 horsepower. It's one of the ultimate extreme sports, pitting man against the mountain in an exhibition of high-revving dirt-roosting two-wheeled action.
