Overview

The Hill Ranch Racers…a great read on a terrific subject

Only one thing matters on the Hill ranch in southeast Colorado: Work. Money’s tight and if a motorcycle is burning gasoline, it better be for good reason. The family’s single foray into racing ended in disaster and proved once and for all that a motorcycle is just another ranch tool to move cows, run errands or transport a kid to school.

The racing world of southern California couldn’t be more opposite. Motorcycles get trailered to the track and raced just for fun, then cleaned and prepared to race again the next weekend. The dirt bikes owned by the Jupiter family of Redlands, California, were never to be used as tools of any kind. They were owned for only one reason: Racing fun!

A Yamaha-sponsored demo-ride program at the Pueblo County Fair near the Hill ranch uncovers enormous talent and some unfinished business, launching a string of events that brings these two disparate worlds of rural Colorado and southern California together.

Motorcyclists of all ages will love Nick Ienatsch’s twisting tale that highlights the joy of motorcycle riding and the beauty of racing passion.

    To be honest I have never been much into reading and have only found a few books to keep me interested enough to finish a few chapters. This book was different, I couldn't put it down! I have met Nick Ienatch and also am a graduate of the Yamaha Champions Rididng School. His passion and love of the sport is evident in how he teaches, coaches and inspires anyone willing to listen. This book captured all of that and more.
