While Shaun Palmer news items are few and far between since his ?retirement? from downhill mountain bike racing, we did get word of this little gem: Palmer is planning to do the Pike? Peak Hill Climb in a Cadillac. This legendary hill climb in Colorado is a 12.42-mile ascent on a 20-foot wide gravel road with about 150 turns. It has an elevation gain of 4,708 feet (the start line is at 9, 402 ft. and the finish is at 14,110 ft.) with an average grade of 7-percent. The most famous images from this crazy exhibition are that of diesel truck tractors in full four-wheel drift around one of the turns. The 78th running of the race will be on July 4th. Here’s to Palmer not only qualifying but also doing some real damage on his way to the top! Palmer’s two-wheeled news is limited to these two rumors: He may race the Big Bear, California, NORBA National downhill and is planning on racing the Washougal, Washington, AMA motocross National. Palmer also has a new line of outerwear to complement his snowboard line.
