Ducati's recently launched Multistrada has won its first international competition, taking the win and a third place finish in the 1200cc class of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado.
In the hands of Pikes Peak veteran, Greg Tracy, the Multistrada 1200 S took a massive lead off the start line, and finished at the top podium position at the end of the climb to 4,300m. Tracy ran a smooth race, hitting 220kmh at one point, on the bike, which demonstrated its exceptional on and off-road capabilities with its electronically controlled “riding-modes”.
His teammate, Alexander Smith, ensured the second Multistrada entry also made the podium. Smith looked set to complete a 1-2 finish for Ducati, but fell in the last corner before remounting to grab third.
