LAWRENCE, Kan, Aug 8, 2007 – Winners of both ATV classes held at Pikes Peak International Hill Climb dominated on HiPer’s top-quality Tech 3 racing wheels. On July 21, Michael Ell and Steven Tutt both came home from Colorado Springs with 1st place victories at the 85th annual “Race to the Clouds”.
Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is an incredibly challenging 12.4 mile race. The start line is at a staggering 9,000 ft with a 20-50ft wide, rocky path leading to the 14,000 foot finish line. Nearly 30 ATV riders risk falling thousands of feet down the mountain side while competing for wins in either the 450 or 500cc ATV classes.
Michael Ell racing on HiPer’s 10 inch Tech 3 wheels sped into 1st place with a time of 12:25.599. His finish was a mere 4 seconds ahead of his competition. Steven Tutt conquered his competition in the 450cc class. Despite being his first year competing in the Pikes Peak race he not only won his class, but also set a new record with a time of 12:55.347.
