Poags Hole Hillclimb
Motorcycle hillclimbing is a motorsport that has taken place in Dansville since 1996. Cyclists from across the country come to Dansville to conquer the Poag's Hole Hill. At the Poag's Hole Hillclimb, motorcyclists are often riding modified bikes and striving to reach the top of a 500 foot vertical hill set at an 80 degree angle. The hillclimb is a national event, even gaining the interest and coverage from ESPN and a wide variety of sporting venues.
Hillclimb racing has captivated both riders and fans since motorcycle competition began. The machines and riders have evolved over time, but the challenge of being quickest is still the greatest challenge. That, and the mountain that they face. Poags Hole is a professional motorcycle hillclimb which features 10 ft. long, 300 horsepower nitro-methane powered motorcycles along with regular-sized bikes competing side-by-side to conquer the climb.
Poags Hole Hillclimb is promoted as a festival and family / community oriented event.
