Pikes Peak: Motorcycle Results

Motorcycle Racing

Ducati finished first and third (out of four), in the premier motorcycle-race category, during the 88th annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, held in the mountains above Colorado Springs, Colorado.

In its very first international motorcycle racing competition, the new 2010 Multistrada 1200 S took top honors in the 1200cc class in the hands of Pikes Peak Veteran Greg Tracy with a time of 11:46.550.

Although the timesheets show that an older generation air-cooled Ducati Multistrada, with Gary Trachy at the controls, had the outright best time of all motorcycles with a 11:33.710.

In the heavyweight class, the Multistrada 1200 took a massive lead off the starting line, and rode into clouds to take the top podium position at 14,110 feet. Tracy ran a smooth, uneventful race which demonstrated the exceptional on and off road capabilities of Ducati’s latest offering.

“That was an exciting week I’ve got to say. I want to thank Ducati for the opportunity they’ve given me- I was even pitted in front of Rhys Millen’s Unlimited Class ride- that was pretty cool! The Spider Grips Falkner-Livingston Multistrada was an amazing ride. Everyone did an awesome job and that motorcycle is crazy fast- it hit 137mph at one point! The bike worked great on the dirt and the asphalt,” said Tracy in the post race award ceremony.

“When I was growing up, and all these factory teams would win races, I was sure they had these $100,000 engines and that was why they went so fast. I was wrong. This is my first year on a factory motorcycle and I’ll tell you that bike was box-stock. It had some carbon, and few tweaks and that was it.”

Greg’s teammate Alexander Smith also put in a formidable performance, ensuring the second Ducati entry made the podium. Alexander fought his way up the mountain, and while battling for second had an accident in the last corner, which slowed him down but still allowed time to remount and finish third.

“I have to repeat everything Greg said about the bike- it was really perfect. The race was good, and if you see the start line footage you can tell how awesome the bike was working,” said Smith.

“It was a pretty uneventful race up until the last corner where I kind of laid it down. I got off real quick and remounted which was still good enough for third and got two Ducati’s on the podium.”
