A 12.42 mile route, paved and unpaved, at a steep incline to the finish line at 14,110-feet summit, not forgetting the 156 corners of various degrees along the way, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is more than just a time trial. Rather, its an endurance race in short intervals for both man and machine. To push his limits a bit further, flat track racer Joe Kopp took up the challenge to set a new world record for motorcycles on Pikes Peak. Along with Latus Motors and a heavily modified Triumph Speed Triple, Kopp succeeded in his goal only to be “out speed” by fellow racer Carlin Dunne.
