At last weekend’s 92nd running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC), the American Jeremy Toye – an Isle of Man TT competitor – was untouchable.

Toye piloted a 2015 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R to the fastest motorcycle time of the 2014 PPIHC “Race to the Clouds” – a 9:58.7 up the 12.42-mile Pikes Peak course that contains 156 corners.

The San Diego resident’s PPIHC time on the Ninja, which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2015, set a new Open-class record, and was just six seconds off the overall record of 9:52.819, which was set by Carlin Dunne in 2012 (Ducati Multistrada, former 1205 Division Class).

Toye’s time also gave him the sixth-fastest motorcycle to ever compete at the PPIHC. And his weapon of choice was the ZX-10R Ninja, which featured a Two Brothers Racing Black Series exhaust system, which helped the bike produce 191 horsepower.

Toye is no stranger to success; he has set a fastest newcomer lap at the Isle of Man TT (2006), took third at the Macau Grand Prix, and has multiple top-five AMA Pro Racing finishes.
