By now, most motorsports fans know that Sebastien Loeb, the nine-time World Rally champion from France, absolutely dominated this year's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, setting a new course record of 8 minutes, 13.878 seconds in his 875-hp Peugeot 208 T16. But what happened with the motorcycles? Well, for the last three years, Carlin Dunne of Santa Barbara, California, has been the fastest motorcycle racer up Pikes Peak. In 2012, the first year the 12.4-mile, 156-turn hill climb course was fully paved, Dunne raced a Ducati Multistrada to the crest of the 14,110-foot Colorado Rocky in 9 minutes, 52.819 seconds, breaking the 10-minute barrier and setting a motorcycle record that still stands. And this year, on a Lightning Electric Superbike (a 500-pound bike with a monocoque chassis, lithium-ion composite batteries and a 200-horsepower electric motor that has "twice the torque of a Suzuki GSX-R 1000"), Dunne was again the fastest motorcycle up the mountain, winning the Exhibition Powersports class with a time of 10 minutes, 0.694 seconds. A few days after the event, I chatted with Dunne by phone from his Ducati dealership in Santa Barbara.
