  • PEAK Grip Motorcyclist Oct. 2012

  • Somehow, oddly, the second day of getting up at 3:00 is even easier than the first. Today the moon was full and just about to set behind the mountain when we headed thru the gate. It was gone by the time we reached our pit area, making it very dark […]

  • It was the first super early morning of the Pikes Peak season today. We rolled out of the Mecca’s parking lot at exactly 3:30am. The schedule allowed time for a quick stop at the local Seven Eleven for some coffee and a chance to wake up the sleepy night clerk. […]

    Today we were back on the mountain, positioned at an area called “Cove Creek”. It is a beautiful bowl just above 10,000ft altitude on the famous Pikes Peak International Hill Climb track. We parked the Sprinter vans on a pretty steep angle along the side of the road, and unload […]

    Well, most of the team has left Colorado now and starting making our way back home. I think I can speak for us all when I say that Greg and Alexander did an amazing job on Sunday.  The course conditions were challenging – the rain was threatening, and just before […]

  • RACE DAY 8:45AM

    Posted on June 27, 2010

    Up extra early today – we were at the gate to the mountain before 3:00am, but that wasn’t early enough – there was quite a line to get in. Only competitors could enter before 4:00am, but even so, the line extended to the highway. At first light, the vans are […]

    Well, once again the Spider Grips Ducati Race Team loaded up very early in the morning, and headed up Pikes Peak for a practice session. Today we were based out of Devil’s Playground.  The full moon was just beginning to set as we drove into the bowl that forms the […]
