Red Marley Hill Climb 2011

haze5555 made some very nice action pictures of the Red Marley Hill Climb.

Red Marley Hill Climb is an action packed day.

The hill is 440 yards (1/4 mile) and reaches almost 1:1.5 near the top where there is a challenging jump known as “the pimple”.

Riders compete 4 at a time from a standing start - the first two over the finish line progress to the next round.

Carl Pope currently holds the record with a time of 19.53 seconds achieved in 2009 aboard his Cheney BSA.

There are 3 classes plus the allcomers class. Machines are all pre 1970 and vary from rigid framed machines from the 1930’s to competitive replica Triumphs and BSA based classic scramblers.
