Project 156 Heads to Pikes Peak Getting ready: We'll test the Victory Pikes Peak machine in Colorado this weekend.

Project 156 Heads to Pikes Peak Getting ready: We'll test the Victory Pikes Peak machine in Colorado this weekend.

Over the past few months I've had the pleasure of being cc'd on steady email correspondence between Victory Racing and Roland Sands Design. Along the way, I've seen Project 156 transform from rough concept drawings into sophisticated CAD illustrations and now, finally, a full-on race bike ready...

Victory, in partnership with Roland Sands Design, had been teasing it for a few weeks now, but today the duo finally unveiled the Prototype Project 156, the completely hand-built motorcycle built to tackle the 156 turns (hence the name) of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, taking place...

Racing is often about overcoming challenges. Many you can prepare for; others simply aren't in the plan. The obstacles at Pikes Peak are not typical of traditional closed circuit roadracing. For me, memorizing the 156-turn, 12.42-mile course was the easy part compared to the challenge my team... 

Project 156, our Pikes Peak Hill Climb effort done in conjunction with Victory Motorcycles and Roland Sands Design, suffered a setback last Saturday when Road Test Editor Don Canet crashed the prototype Victory during a test on the mountain. Canet didn't suffer any serious injuries, but the... 

While seated on a flat slab of granite I caught my breath and gathered my thoughts. Looming 1,000 feet above the barren landscape around me, Pikes Peak's 14,110-foot summit and our finish line were a mere 2 miles farther up the road. My heart was still racing even though our bid for the finish...

The prototype machine built by Victory Motorcycles with Roland Sands Design quit running less than 2 miles from the finish line at Pikes Peak yesterday. The DNF brought to an unceremonious halt the much-hyped effort piloted by Cycle World's Don Canet. Interestingly, there appeared to be "radio...
