DIRTY DOZEN: 12 COLORADO PEAKS ON THE DESERTX (PART 1)

8 months ago | Words: Matt Holmes | Photos: Ducati Media House

Need some inspiration for your next globetrotting adventure ride? Look no further. Ducati North America has curated an epic ride, taking in a series of Colorado’s greatest mountain passes that will test your two-wheeled skills and create lifelong memories. It’s known as the “Dirty Dozen”.

THE CHALLENGE

The Dirty Dozen are 12 mountain passes, all exceeding 3600 meters (or 12,000 feet – hence the name) above sea level. Nestled in the heart of the Colorado Rockies, these trails are a magnet for adventure riders across North America.

They the paths of old mining trails, weaving through picturesque mountainsides that offer a constantly changing terrain, ever-shifting conditions and stunning summits that test both man and machine.

Ducati North America CEO, Jason Chinnock, and Jamie Robinson of MotoGeo set out to tackle the Dirty Dozen Challenge in just five days and document their adventure.

Part 1 sees them tackle four peaks in two days – Imogene, Cinnamon, Engineer and Corkscrew Passes – from Gold Rush ruins, rock-strewn trails and stunning views, to transition stages on amazing roads, gravel heaven and untouched natural beauty. And it’s all beautifully filmed with narration to keep you inspired. Definitely some bucket-list riding in the following three videos. Enjoy…
