WHAT IS PIKES PEAK?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Think of it as Amer­ica’s TT. The event is an an­nual mo­tor­cy­cle and car hill climb to the sum­mit of Pikes Peak, Colorado. It takes place in June and will be cel­e­brat­ing its cen­te­nary this year. That makes it the se­cond- old­est mo­tor­sport event in Amer­ica af­ter the In­di­anapo­lis 500. The track mea­sures 12.42 miles over 156 turns, climb­ing 4720 feet from the start to the fin­ish at 14,110ft, on gra­di­ents av­er­ag­ing seven per cent.
