#Godspeed Carlin Dunne! Following the tragic death of the Spider GripsDucati rider on June 30, 2019 while racing at Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (Official Site), Ducati North America and The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb have created a GoFundMe online fundraising account to support Carlin’s mother, Romie, during this difficult time. His loss is felt throughout the international motorcycling and racing community.
Carlin was a 4-time champion of the Hill Climb, won Rookie of the Year in 2011 and broke the 10-minute barrier the following year, setting a new course record that stood for five years. He then selflessly volunteered two race seasons as part of Ducati’s Squadra Alpina Team, with the Race Smart program, mentoring rookie riders as they first came to race the mountain. Carlin documented his week leading up to the race which is true picture of both the man and competitor.
All proceeds raised through the GoFundMe account will go directly to Carlin’s mother, Romie, to help with expenses and to honor his legacy with a celebration of Carlin’s life in Santa Barbara a month from now. The official GoFundMe account can be found here:
