Pike's Peak Results - JB owes us all $20

By George Obradovich, May. 24, 2004
While it may be too late in the season to have serious hopes of catching Mat Mladin's GSX-R1000 for the series championship, Eric Bostrom showed his stuff by winning his first AMA superbike victory of the season. It was our fan-favorite rider's first victory aboard the red machine, staving off the 'inevitable doom' of v-twins in racing long prophesized by certain other readers of this magazine. Mladin finished sixth.

In other news, Johnnyb's retirement account looks a lot thinner as he pays back Sean "candy from a baby" Alexander and many other MO staffers and readers' bets. Doug Chandler rode his Ducati 749R to a podium finish in the Formula Xtreme series, holding off Haskovec's GSX-R600 to finish third. Barnes' heavily-modified, 1350cc Buell pulled out ninth, still on the lead lap but 43 seconds back of the leader, some 30 seconds behind Chandler. Zemke and Miguel Duhamel, both on Hondas, finished first and second, respectively. The other Buell, Mike Ciccotto, finished only 12 laps and got last place.
