Victory Motorcycles Project 156 Rebounds From Practice Crash

Preparing to attack Pike’s Peak on June 28th.
The Victory Motorcycles Project 156 suffered a setback on Saturday June 13th in a practice accident on the Pikes Peak race course. Cycle World Editor and Project 156 rider Don Canet did not suffer any serious injuries, and was immediately up from the crash, however the motorcycle was damaged enough to require a complete strip-down and frame straightening.
       “We have been making significant progress on the engine tune of the motorcycle each time it went out, and were able to start focusing on the handling aspects of the bike,” said Canet. “As I was going up the mountain I lost the front end under braking, asphalt temperature was extremely low and, counterintuitively, I think the tire was getting colder as the run went on.”  Canet took third position in his rookie season in his debut at the “Race to the Clouds” last year.
