SALT LAKE CITY, UT - Riders came from all over the United States to take on the formidable Widowmaker climb this past weekend for Round 2 of the Rockwell Time Professional Hill Climb Series in Croydon, Utah. Matt Coleman, hailing from Laurel, Montana and riding a heavily modified FJ-1200, came out on top and claimed the title of the 2010 Widowmaker Champion. Petey Krunich, riding a Bandit 1200, would finish 2nd overall and Corey Erhardt, on board a KX-1000, rounded out the podium in the 3rd position. Rockwell Time Team rider Brandon Whitlock from Santaquin, Utah was one of only three riders to top the 1,000 plus vertical feet Champion Hill in the 701-Open Exhibition Class on his KZ-1500. Unfortunately a mistake in the 0-700 Exhibition would regulate Whitlock from challenging for the overall. The crowd witnessed some amazing climbs, some horrific crashes, and a stunning aerial performance from the Rockwell Air Time Skydive Team.
"It has been a pleasure for Rockwell to be apart of such a great series and the work put in from Jordy Smith and Darrell Devitt is second to none. We appreciate everything that these two individuals have done to not only grow this series but the sport as well," exclaimed Rich Eggett of Rockwell Time.
The action is sure to heat up as the series heads into its final round at the Great American Championship Motorcycle Hill Climb in Billings, Montana on July 30 through August 1. For more information and to purchase your tickets, visit: The Great American
