Wow, not going for the easy option in machine selection eh?

That's a lovely looking machine.

When is Pike's peak?

I think tickets are $40: http://www.ppihc.com/tickets/
The pavement was finished last year. It drastically lowered times. Most every class had it's record reset, but rain for the cars made sure not everyone could race to the top. Those remaining records will likely be smashed this year.

The race has a hard time making money. The road is a state park and so everyone wants to get paid up front. As stiff as $40 sounds (try paying a $2500 entry fee like the car drivers have to), the event has lost money or just broken even a few times in recent years. I dunno what the financials are from the last 2 years. Entries are up, and supposedly attendance was up, but it did not look that way on race day... not to me at least.

I was up there a few years ago but not on race day. There is a toll to go up the road anytime, not $40.00 but less than $10.00 if I remember correctly. It is a public road but not free.

Yeah the road is in a park, so there is a toll. They don't charge the race organizers $10 to use the road on race day though; they gouge the hell out of the organizers... part of the $40 price tag for race tickets, along with the cops and the helicopters and EMT's and staff and haybales and support vehicles and so on. Personally, I shrug off spectating at events that cost more than $30, especially with flat track being in the $20-$30 price range (that's good spectatin').

Tarmac all the way to the top?

Shakes head in disbelief

We have our own version of the "Pikes Peak" in Mid Wales, it was named by the cross country car racers but we are using the course for a bike rally for the first time on April 28th.

And no tarmac at all (well apart from a little bit to get back to the start line each lap)
