It was after midnight at the Wunderlich America shop in NorCal and the employees and crew were anxiously awaiting the killer bike from Germany being trucked up from L.A. Proprietor Willie stepped outside and gave an encouraging speech to keep the team awake and stoked to be a part of the upcoming race in Colorado:
Finally, around 3 a.m., the awesome custom Wunderlich RaceR, “Number 10”, the German competitor for the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb on July 25th, arrived at our NorCal Wunderlich shop.
The Wunderlich crew stayed up late to take delivery of the RaceR, which had travelled Frankfurt to L.A. to NorCal on its journey to Pikes Peak.
The Wunderlich team was gladly working overtime to “unpack” this beauty at 3 a.m. in the morning.
Settling into Cali, RaceR will be on a tough work-out schedule and protein-oil diet in preparation for the upcoming challenge in Colorado. ?
Stay tuned on this blog for a “diary” of the Wunderlich crew’s “Trek to Pikes Peak” from the California Coast to the Colorado Rockies in a convoy of motor homes, trailers filled with slumbering, gleaming, oiled beasts anxious to tear up the Hillclimb, and a savage team of riders on their bikes. Take part in the adventure of scenic western rides, where you can almost smell the scent of oil & leather, camp fires in the desert, and tin cups of black coffee with sizzling steak & eggs.
Think Quentin Tarantino meets The Wild One / Easy Rider on this road trip of German cowboys determined to compete in and win one of the most challenging races…
