CJ Designs at PIKES PEAK 2012!!!

I’ve decided at this time it would be best to drop out this year and help be pit crew for a good friend than both of us race.   This will give me more time to develope and test a new LC8 engine I have in the works this season and see what this is more about first hand with hopes to come back next year.  Sorry for the disapointment.  We will still be out there so look for a green AWD KTM 950 ADV.

Dear Craig Johnson:

Race #241

Organizers of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) are pleased to announce your acceptance as a competitor in this the 90th running of the “Race to the Clouds”.


The PPIHC is the second oldest auto race in the United States (second only to the Indy 500), originated in 1916.

The PPIHC is a speed contest for motorized vehicles that runs (with the exception of motorcycles, side cars and ATV’s) one vehicle at a time against the clock. The traditional starting line is Mile Post 7 at an altitude of 9,400 feet. The finish line, 12.42 miles away at the summit, is 14,110 feet altitude for a vertical rise of almost 5,000 feet. There are 156 separate curves, a maximum ascent of 10% and a minimum descent of 3% on the course.

The 12.42 mile course is well- maintained asphalt.

I am excited to be heading out early July with the  CJ DESIGNS “Modified” KTM 950 Super Enduro w/ 17″s.  So far, the ONLY KTM entered in this class.    Maybe toss the dirt wheels in too to hit some dirt trails after the race.

Racing in the 1205cc class, so there’s some room for motor mod testing.  😉


Our main goal is to learn and have a great time safely.  We take our product testing seriously and this race is no joke.    I hope to see you there.      I’ll post more updates as the bike build progresses.

Thanks for your support.
