Joe Kopp – Racing Pikes Peak on a Triumph Speed Triple

Joe Kopp with Latus Motors Racing, raced a RS Racecraft Triumph Speed Triple at this year’s Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Via, Joe said, “What’s really going to be fun is applying my dirt track experience to the streetfighter style of motorcycle, especially in the gravel portions of the course. It should be quite a ride.” Joe finished with a time of 11:26.530, and placed first in the Exhibition Powersport category.

2011 Pikes Peak Race photos

I wasn’t in the best spot when the motorcycles came through, but took a few shots. Beautiful weather, and it was wonderful to hear that Monster Tajima broke his record, and came in under 10 minutes. Can you imagine going 12.5 miles over 156 turns, with an elevation change of nearly 5,000 feet? The race starts at 9,300 feet above sea level and finishes at 14,110 feet.
