Jackpine Gypsies Hill Climb

The Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club first introduced the Hill Climb to the Sturgis Rally back in 1961. Every year since then, riders from all over the country have attempted to conquer the 260 foot hill which ends with a near vertical incline.     

A large crowd was on hand Monday for the Pro-Am Hill Climb.
