Jeremy Toye’s POV Pikes Peak Run Aboard Ninja ZX-10R | Video2014 Pikes Peak Win Aboard Ninja ZX-10R

Ahead of Jeremy Toye’s debut at Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, the Isle of Man TT competitor of America had one goal – beat the outright record.

Toye didn’t achieve this goal of beating Carlin Dunne’s 2012 record lap of 9:52.819 (Ducati), but he did place his Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R within six seconds of that record lap.

And his time of 9:58.687 up the 12.42-mile mountain containing 156 turns gave him the win in the 2014 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Open Class. This also became the record lap in the new Open Class.

Toye did crash during qualifying, but was able to regain his composure to take the overall win. Due to his performance, he received the “Rookie of the Year” and “King of the Mountain” awards. He also became just the third rider in history to finish the race in less than 10 minutes (the other two are Carlin Dunne and Greg Tracey, both on Ducati Multistrada motorcycles).

Toye took the overall motorcycle time, posting a 9:58.687 in the Open class, which also became a new record in the Open class. In the Open class, he was followed by a string of Ducati machinery.
