(July 16, 2012) - Signorelli and the Kuryakyn Racing for a Wish Team have planned all year to race in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. As is customary, the race was scheduled around the Fourth of July originally. The tragic Waldo Canyon Fire put the Colorado Springs community in survival mode, however, and it was clear that postponing the race was the only option. The new race date has been announced and it will be held August 12th. The week leading up to that will include a Fan Fest Celebration in downtown Colorado Springs where the Kuryakyn Racing for a Wish Team will have sixty feet of display space to give fans an up close look at the motorcycles, rig, and a chance to interact with the racer. Local sponsors, Pikes Peak Harley-Davidson, Sprinter of Littleton, and UBS Financial will also be represented at the week’s events. The team will be hosting a VIP Dinner event at Pikes Peak Harley-Davidson. The team racers may also take a scenic drive up the peak in the fantastic Sprinters provided by Sprinter of LIttleton to chat with a few lucky VIP’s and see the intimidating race course.

The new PPIHC date conflicts with an already planned AMA Pro test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway though. The Kuryakyn Racing for a Wish Team is committed to both the AMA Pro Schedule as well as the PPIHC so they are now accepting applications for riders to race a special “Pikes Peak Edition” AMA Pro Spec Harley-Davidson XR1200. The team will prepare the bike for the rider, provide two sets of tires, and transfer all of Signorelli’s entry to the chosen rider. There will be a rental fee required of the chosen rider and attending the Fan Fest Celebration will be mandatory for promotional reasons.
