It takes the right team, dedication, and motorcycle to win a podium at Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. And this year, Ducati took two. Here’s a short video showing the 2018 King of the Mountain, Carlin Dunne, in action.
Ducati racer Carlin Dunne once again led the Ducati Pikes Peak team to victory and reclaimed the crown as King of the Mountain during the 2018 running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. He completed the race in a blistering quick in 9:59:102 – and took his fourth victory at Pikes Peak.
“We did it. We took the podium,” said Dunne, who notably was the first motorcyclist ever to traverse the 4,720-foot Pikes Peak race course in less than 10 minutes in 2012. “The Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak proved as amazing as we all hoped. It performed flawlessly, giving me everything I needed to get up the mountain. Pikes Peak is never an easy race, but the weather cooperated and we clinched the victory for Ducati.”
This year, Dunne secured the win on the new Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak model. The new Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak showcases the versatility of a new, larger displacement 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT engine delivering 18% more torque in the mid-range – combined with a redesigned chassis, for increased stability.
