Good thing no one was hurt, so I can laugh at the ridiculousness of this crash and not feel bad.

Pikes Peak is paved now?

Why are they still racing dirt bikes on it?

It is paved the entire route, kills me a little that it's been 19 years since I've watched a race here. So exciting. Witnessing 2 experienced amateur racers going at it on a very tight cornered hilly piece of tarmac {in another part of the world}, the 450 motard beat the liter race bike all 3 times. Same 2 riders competing on a 2 mile track it's no contest the other way.
