This is the highlight reel for FFR from the Pike's Peak Cycling Hill Climb 2012.
FFR won 1st and 2nd place with a NEW COURSE RECORD time of 23 minutes and 32 seconds. The Transition 422 Alpha (Ridden by Tommy) held an average speed of 31.6 mph, and the Transition 411 Hyperlite (Ridden by Jesse) averaged 30.2 mph.

The Pike's Peak course for the Cycling Hill Climb is the same as the Auto Hill Climb this year: 12.42 miles, 7% average grade, 4,700 feet of elevation gain (ending at 14,110 feet), and 156 turns.

The winning FFR trike was the Transition 422 Alpha, and second place was the Transition 411 Hyperlite. After coming back down to the starting line of the 12.42 mile course on the 422 Alpha we rode it up the course a second time at full speed, came back down to the start, and still had about 15 miles of range to spare - all without recharging. If you want the ultimate in performance and range, look no further than the Transition 422 Alpha. http://www.ffrtrikes.com/ProductDetai...

The Transition 422 Alpha and the Transition 411 Hyperlite were raced at full power settings, but are fully and easily programmable to a complete range of power levels (250 watts up to 4200 watts)

The third place finisher crossed the finish line a few minutes after the 411R and was ridden by Adam from Wisconsin on a home-built liquid cooled hub motor ebike (He's wearing the white shirt in the video). Congrats Adam! A few Optibike riders came in a couple minutes later.
