Ducati wins the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

Ducati has managed to set an all time motorcycle record at the historic Pikes Peak International Hill Climb this past weekend, making it the second consecutive victory in the historic race.

The man behind this impressive result is Dunne, owner of Ducati Santa Barbara in California, along with his Multistrada 1200 . Dunne started the record breaking weekend during the qualification days when he managed to qualify on pole for the race. When it came to the actual race, Dunne got the holeshot at the start and never looked back. The time across the finish line was 11:11.32; a new course record for motorcycles.

"We were definitely anxious to get out and race today;" said Dunne about his race. "When the flag dropped I got the holeshot and went for it. The whole week’s worth of setup work with my technician Sam Swain came together and the Multistrada 1200 worked flawlessly to give us the win. With the help of Spider Grips, Dumontec, BrakeTech and Burley Motorsports we can go home with an all time record!"

I am not really all that surprised that Ducati was able to pull this one off. After all, they are already well established when it comes to motorcycle design, and this one just cemented that more.

Well, this one just goes to show how well suited Ducati bikes are when it comes to climbing slopes. Really makes me more than eager to ride one myself.

Well now, that one is certainly quite something. The Pikes Peak course is certainly not for the faint hearted and it will definitely challenge a rider’s skills. Congratulations to Ducati.
