Harley-Davidson Adds Hillclimb to 115th Anniversary Festivities

“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.

Harley-Davidson is set to take grass-roots racing over the top with the addition of Hillclimb Motorcycle Racing to a slate of wide-open competition, moto-culture-centric activities and street parties during the Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary Celebration in Milwaukee on Aug. 29-Sept. 2.

The Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary Hillclimb, which will offer a taste of Harley-Davidson heritage while showcasing the heart-pumping excitement of today’s racing action, is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 1, at Little Switzerland, a 200-foot-high ski hill in Slinger, WI.

“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.”

Other racing action scheduled for the anniversary weekend includes: Flat Out Friday Powered by Harley-Davidson on Aug. 31, featuring bar-to-bar indoor flat-track racing on the concrete floor of Panther arena in Milwaukee on an oval circuit soaked with sticky Dr. Pepper syrup.

Also, Run What You Brung Drag Racing Powered by Harley-Davidson on Aug. 31, will put participants side-by-side and head-to-head round after round at Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, WI.

Race entry information and event details are posted online.

“This is an anniversary celebration not to miss,” said Heather Malenshek, vice president of marketing at Harley-Davidson. “There will be moto-culture activities perfect for riders and non-riders alike, as well as families. Most activities will be free and open to the public.”

Upgraded Rally Packs are available for exclusive Harley-Davidson experiences at the event.
