Pikes Peak Hill Climb.

ok, finally back in one piece. Successfully climbed the mountain to honor my friend Marc LaNoue who passed away January of this year. Raced his record setting 2012 champion bike #9, and brought it first to the finish line. A tribute race for a friend that concluded picture perfect. Awesome experience and a closure to the friends and family who have gathered together and spread his ash from the top of the mountain on the day before the race.

Awesome vid. Thanks for posting. That wobble in the turn after the 6:40 mark gave me a scare just watching. And the clear blue sky after was so beautiful must be hard not to look... must have been harder than trying to study for an exam in a strip joint. Congrats.
Experience is not something you get until just after you needed it.

Great friend to do that. We should all be as lucky. Saw the spokes. What were you riding.. Did you meet Guy Martin?
