Chip Yates 2011 Pikes Peak - Full Record Setting Race on a electric bike!

Post by Sandblaster » Sat Oct 01, 2016 3:02 pm

June 26, 2011 Chip Yates piloted his homebuilt 240hp electric superbike to 14,110 feet setting the world record for electric motorcycles on Pikes Peak and placing 2nd in class. Chip was hampered by 2.6 agonizingly slow miles of dirt, a huge oil slick on the Bottomless Pit right hand sweeper, and many hairpins had dirt strewn across them. Next year the course is entirely paved and Chip will be going for a top-10 or better result!

Remember, he was competing against the worlds fastest gas bikes and beat them all... :shock:
If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.
