Round 1- Brick Mine (Walhalla, ND)
The Eagle Ridge Motorcycle Club and Pembina Gorge Dirt Riders host the first round of the IRC MSS in Walhalla, North Dakota, a few miles away from the Canadian border. This former brick mine-turned race hill borders the Pembina River and is approximately 750' long. It features a long rhythm section leading up to a very steep hill that challenges the best in the nation.
Round 2- Big Hill Jam (Yoncalla, OR)
In 2021, Josh Hill and the Hill family hosted the third round of the IRC MSS at the Big Hill Jam. In addition to the motoclimb race, there were pit bikes races, FMX demos, whip contests, live music, and more! Riders from all over flocked to Oregon to compete, which provided some of the most stacked 450 Main racing we can remember. Josh built the hill with a mix of motocross and technical hill, making it fairly even for the riders duking it out. Due to limited room, the Open Class will be limited to the top 32 of riders in the IRC MSS Championship points after Round 2. The 450 Class will have more spots available.
Round 3- South Hills Showdown (Billings, MT)
The Billings Motorcycle Club in Billings, Montana, has been active since 1914 and will host the fourth and final round of the IRC MSS. Last year, the IRC MSS partnered with the Rockwell Pro Hill Climb Series at the Big Sky Challenge as an exhibition series round, which had some awesome racing. These hills are made up of bentonite and are about 350 feet long, but are very steep and technical that have been challenging the best climbers for over a century. This year, the South Hills Showdown will run the same weekend as an AMA US Hard Enduro round!
Round 4- Carnegie Classic (TRACY, CA)
Carnegie SVRA in Tracy, CA is a classic West Coast hill that has hosted some of the world's best racers over the past four decades. Skip's Promotions started hosting races here in the 1980s, and Elevated Action Sports has been hosting events here since 2015. This 500 foot hill is steep, with some ruts and rocks scattered throughout. If the weather cooperates, the clay-based dirt is some of the best around and provides insane traction.
