Ducati launches the Pikes Peak race blog featuring the Multistrada 1200

Some cool Ducati Multistrada stuff over here on this blog. Great pictures, video, and information. Here's just a little sample:

Ducati North America is excited to unveil the Pikes Peak Race Blog, an internet resource where fans can follow the Pikes Peak Ducati Team from the building of the bikes through the Race to the Clouds on June 27th.

Following a successful mountain test this past weekend, the Faulkner-Livingston Ducati race team has prepared a blog for all to follow. The blog documents their adventures building and racing the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

As the most prestigious Hill Climb in America, Pikes Peak is the race in which both automobile and motorcycle racers alike dream of taking top time and mountain glory. Over the years several iconic moments in racing history have been made there; such as Audi’s legendary Quattro victories with Walter Rohrl. In 2010 Ducati is aiming to add to that list with the radical new Multistrada 1200.

The Ducati Multistrada 1200 is a type of motorcycle the mountain has never seen before- one which through a combination of ride-by-wire throttle, traction control, ABS and electronic suspension can adapt itself to a rider’s demands on the fly.  This negates the need for a compromise in setup between the course’s paved and dirt sections, and enables the Multistrada to achieve optimum performance the whole way up the mountain.

The Pikes Peak Race Blog can be found at www.pikespeak.ducatiusa.com; where the team’s progress can be followed all the way through race day on June 27th.

For more information about the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and Ducati’s participation in the race; please visit pikespeak.ducatiusa.com. To learn more about Ducati and its line of racing inspired motorcycles please visit www.ducatiusa.com.
