Nate Redmann took his second AMA Pro Hillclimb Xtreme class win in as many races when he set the fast time of the day at the Bushkill Valley MC hillclimb on June 10. Shane Green climbed to the top of the Unlimited class podium and Ian Lau took top honors in Pro Sport. In Exhibition Hill-Cross, Bryan Rusnak clinched the win in a three-way elbow-to-elbow charge up the hill.
The Xtreme class seems to be all about Redmann with three class championships behind him and two wins already this year. He rode early in the first half and laid down the perfect ride and the time to beat- 10.887 seconds, except no one did. Green was just four-tenths off the pace for second and Phil Libhart rode a second slower for third.
AMA Pro Hillclimbers met again just three days later for round three at Canaan, NH for the Shawn P. Farnsworth Memorial Hillclimb on June 13. Results from that round are available at http://www.amaproracing.com/hc/ and a race report from that round will be released soon.
