  • Pikes Peak 2013 Follow-up

    Posted on December 19, 2013

    Taking Performance to New Heights Click Above for the Video: The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is an iconic event – but one thing about it is that it is tough to find info on the race – beyond results. The Motorcycle divisions in particular get little coverage. But ‘On […]

  • Race Week – Saturday, Day 5

    Posted on June 29, 2013

    Pikes Peak Hill Climb is a Time Trial event for the rider. But for the crew it is an endurance event. Each day the crew (including the rider) is up early, on the mountain at altitude, and working hard. The days are  loooong. Generally up around 2:00am and working pretty […]

  • Qualifying! Practice Day 4 of 4

    Posted on June 28, 2013

  • Practice Day 3 of 4

    Devils Playground – The sunrise from here is amazing – a lot like watching the sun come up from an airplane window.  We are 12,750 ft up on the mountain. Micky is running from here to the summit. After the sun rises the bugs appear – non biting, so it’s […]

  • Practice Day 2 of 4

    Posted on June 26, 2013

    We are back at Glen Cove today. I suspect that the Pikes Peak Race Organization is using this location rather than Cove Creek which is on the schedule, because the electric motorcycles need the power sources here. There are no services at Cove Creek. So lucky us – we get […]

  • Practice Day 1 of 4 Glen Cove

    Posted on June 25, 2013

    Glen Cove: 4:00am. Below freezing temps and the wind is blowing. In fact it is blowing hard enough to topple over the orange cones marking the start line for the official practice runs. Also, it is dark. But we’re at Pikes Peak and oh so happy to be in the […]

  • Spider Grips in 24 hr Endurance

    Posted on May 6, 2013

    When we designed the Spider SLR grip, our purpose was to make a grip that is something like a track tire. It offers the very best in grippy performance, coupled with vibration damping. Just like a track tire it will wear well, but quickly under the intense use of a […]
