HP Sidecars take on Pikes Peak

If you live in the Denver area you may have seen these 2 rigs running around. They are from France and are here to

take on Pikes Peak. It will be interesting to see how they make out against the racing rigs.

Posted the question, then decided to have a look myself.
It's a bit of a fizzer as far as videos go and, I don't speak French.

Any videos or more photos?

Bruno, the French "green" guy is a member here on ADV, and started a Pikes Peak thread in the racing section here:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=875221
Since the whole road is paved now (it was almost all dirt back when I was racing it), I expect a new sidecar record will be set again.

Hi Roger

Looks like you won't be on any SMCC rides in the near future now you've moved a bit cloer to heaven.

I remember rides down to the Adirondacks and Vermont when you had that crazy yellow Commanchee. Amazing how that handled the twisties.

I've been snooping around here and finally after all these years bought a Dnepr that I'm going clean up and install on the GS. Like to head back to the Trans Lab and Trans Taiga with a sidecar rig.

Hi Dan
Sounds like a good plan to me. If you do the Cabot Trail stop by.

Results

The yellow rig, Christophe Lebert, riding a Yamaha FJ1100 finished 3rd in the sidecar class in: 12:15.250

The green rig, Bruno Marlin, riding a Benelli finished 4th in the sidecar class in:12:22.286

These fully street legal HPS rigs beat out 2 full racing rigs

Great video!

I think the dirt days were something special, what are people's thoughts on the paving?

I met Silvie and Christoph -or, as they introduced themselves to me - Gazelle and Bbr at Goosenecks of the San Juan Park in SE Utah on July 4th. Great people. Unfortunately they had already shipped their rig back to France.

They were touring the Southwest with some freinds on their way next to Monument Valley and Grand Canyon.
