Well, it’s a hatrick for Ducati. It’s been since the past three years, that Ducati has been grabbing the top most position in Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. This year, 2012’s event was even stolen by this Spider Grips Ducati rider Carlin Dunne.
Nevertheless, Dunne on his Multistrada 1200S has been able to set a new record this year of 9:52.819, starting from the pole position. The person, who has won this event for six-times and is the teammate of Dunne, was able to grab the second position, completing in 9:58.262.
The 14,110-foot terrains of Pikes Peak were crossed by Dunne at an average speed of 230kmph, crossing a total of 156 turns during his 20km race course. This hill climb is located in a range of the Rocky Mountains, which lie
16km west of Colorado Springs. The initial line of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb lies at a height of 9,389ft and end up at an altitude of 14,100ft.
Full of emotions after his win, Dunne said, “The year of work the Spider Grips Ducati team put into preparing for Pikes Peak got us across the finish line in less than 10 minutes, an achievement we're very proud of”.
He was speechless after knowing that he was behind breaking the record for Ducati for the second time.
