Taking Performance to New Heights: Pikes Peak – The Race (Video)

On The Throttle TV Releases Finale Pikes Peak Video

The final webisode of “Taking Performance to New Heights,” which chronicles SBK Factory’s Jake Holden and James Compton’s efforts at the 2013 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

The latest episode – titled “Pikes Peak – The Race” –  takes viewers behind-the-scenes with the SBK Factory team as it prepares for and races up America’s Pikes Peak Mountain — a 12.42-mile ride that climbs over 5,000 feet with 156 turns.

Compton, SBK Factory founder and custom bike builder, teams up with his longtime friend and AMA Pro Road Racer Holden to race in the 2013 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. From practice, to qualifying, to the main event, watch as Holden and Compton test the limits of themselves and their pair of custom built SBK Factory ZRX1224RR Superbikes.

Previous “Taking Perfomance to New Heights” episodes highlight “The Bike,” a custom built Kawasaki ZRX1224RR Superbike; “The Test,” on the track at Harris Hill Raceway; and “The Team,” a history of dynamic duo Holden and Compton.

The entire web series is available on OnTheThrottle.TV’s website and YouTube channel. The full series and additional bonus footage will also be available on DVD this January.
