Imagine attempting an obstacle while a slew of spectators watches your every move intently, small cones keep you boxed in, and guys in orange shirts walk around and judge you like you're competing in the Olympics. Throw in a helmet, a few stickers, and a little cash and you're ready to compete in Superlift's ProROCK Championship series rockcrawling. Recently we had a chance to cruise out to Cougar Buttes OHV area in Southern California, and check out a little bit of this year's professional rockcrawling competitors. On hand were a few dozen well-crafted tube buggies accompanied by die-hard rockcrawler fans that at times got a little too close to the action.
Although we keep up with points about as well as we keep track of scratches on our rigs, we really like the friendly competition and the energy that each team puts into their run. This is definitely an impressive spectacle to see in person and if you get the chance to check out these buggies in action, we would definitely recommend it. And if you get a chance, check out the remote-control rockcrawler masterpieces that these guys are building. We wish they had this stuff when we were kids.
