Harley-Davidson adds Hillclimb to bevy of new racing events at 115th anniversary

Harley-Davidson's 115th anniversary celebration already had a distinct racing flavor to it, and that only intensified Thursday when the company announced yet another speed-themed event for Labor Day weekend.

Hillclimb Motorcycle Racing will make its debut at the anniversary celebration, which runs from August 29-Sept. 2. The event, set for Sept. 1, will be held at Little Switzerland, a 200-foot-high ski hill in Slinger.

“It will be rider and machine against gravity on a steep-and-gnarly course up the face of the ski hill,” said Harley-Davidson marketing lead Eric Jensen. “Hillclimb is one of the original forms of motorcycle competition and a big part of our history that’s celebrated by The Hill Climber statue at the Harley-Davidson Museum. This event is a natural fit for our anniversary weekend as we put motorcycle culture on full display.”
