Our friend David Kern recently competed in his 7th Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. This race has some of the most diverse and unpredictable conditions climbing from 9000 feet to 14,000 feet in 12.4 miles. This year Dave was dealt a tough hand as the weather turned on him and did not cooperate with his tire choice. Piloting his 700+HP, AMS equipped EVO VIII up the mountain through rain and sleet on his Continental Slicks he was still able to claim 4th place with a time of 11:13.074.
Our hats go off to Dave & Allison Kern along with the Race Kern Team and Sponsors on a great effort this year!
