Carlin Dunne set a new course record on his way to winning the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on board a Ducati Multistrada 1200 S.

The win was Ducati's third-straight victory at the historic Race to the Clouds.

Both Dunne and his teammate, the six-time winner Greg Tracy, finished the race under the ten-minute barrier, which is a first for any motorcycle in the race's 90-year history.

"When we heard that we won and broke the record for the second time, I was speechless. The one-two finish proves the Ducati Multistrada 1200 S is the ultimate bike to conquer Pikes Peak," said Dunne.

The Multistrada reached speeds above 144mph and traversed 156 turns while consistently gaining elevation up the technical 12.42-mile course.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is situated in a range of the Rocky Mountains and races from a start line altitude of 9,389ft to a finish line at 14,100ft.

"Ducatisti around the world are celebrating the victory of Carlin Dunne," said Dominique Cheraki, general manager of Ducati North America.
