Pikes Peak Gets EMT Motorcycles from Ducati

  • By cannonball

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is rapidly approaching, and the iconic “Race to the Clouds” continues to mature, despite this year being its 95th running.

Helping mitigate the safety issues that come with racing on the mountain’s 156 turns is Ducati North America, which already supports racer mentoring with the Squadra Alpina program. Now, Pikes Peak is taking another step forward.

Again with the help of Ducati North America, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb will have emergency first-responders on motorcycles.

  • By cannonball

Watch as James ‘Dynamite’ Hillier somehow manages to keep a nearly out of control Kawasaki superbike upright, on the road and in the race! Blazing around the Isle of Man’s ‘Ballagarey Corner’, also known as Balla-Scary, Hillier wills the machine back into line.

Still one of the best saves we have ever seen! #IsleOfManTT #MotorcycleSave

Sette Nero Scintilla – The Bike Shed

  • By cannonball

Our 8th show at Tobacco Dock the other weekend really felt like a game changer but at the same time it reminded us of why we enjoy working within this industry so much. We had the chance to bump into old friends we’d made many years ago, just as the then new wave (perhaps now just custom will suffice) scene was spreading like wildfire throughout the capital.

Hutchy continues Superstock domination; Rutter makes it five.

  • By cannonball

A day that dawned with fair weather cloud punctuating the sunshine became a very dark day indeed as two tragic accidents threw a pall of despair over the Isle of Man. This morning’s Superstock Race saw the first fatal accident on its first lap. Jochem van den Hoek aged 28, from Werkendam, in the Netherlands lost control of his machine at the 11th Milestone. He was treated at the scene; but sadly succumbed to his injuries. He made his debut last year; lapping at over 121.6mph with a best placing of 34th in the Superstock Race. He finished in 27th place in Sunday’s Superbike Race winning a bronze replica and setting a new personal best lap at 121.841mph. We join the organizers in offering our deepest sympathy to Jochem’s family.
