Thanks to the Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club, hill climbs are a long-running staple of the Sturgis Rally. Here at J&P Cycles, we like to mob up slippery slopes as much as the next guy, so this year we held our inaugural hooligan hill climbs at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s Camp Zero. We invited a bunch of good peeps like our friends at Go Fast Don’t Die, Danger Dan @dangerdanimal and some of the clan we frequently bang bars with on hooligan flat tracks to come out and have a go at the rocky hill across the street from The Chip in some head-to-head drag races.

If ever there was somebody who embodied the hooligan spirit of the event, it’s Mikey Hill aka mikeyvirus_963. Mikey rode his custom 2018 Fat Bob from SoCal to Sturgis with just a backpack strapped to his bike, romped up the hill climb (just ask Pat how fast Mikey is), shredded some dirt track racing on it, then rode the Bob back home. If that doesn’t reflect the spirit of the event, we don’t know what does. We had so much fun, maybe we’ll do it again next year! Who’s in? Until then, enjoy this little video we put together to whet your appetite.
