Little of the 12.42-mile 156-turn road course at the Pike's Peak International Hill Climb is visible from a single spectator position. So Carlin Dunne treated me to a first-person view from the back of his Ducati Multistrada before the course was closed for race day. In 2012, Dunne set the two-wheel course record of 9:52:819 at Pike's Peak, which still stands after Sunday's 100th anniversary (and 94th running) of the PPIHC, the second-oldest motorsports race in the U.S. (after the Indy 500).

Here's something we didn't expect when the Cubs started 25-6: The Rangers have passed them for most wins in the majors. The Cubs still hold a small edge in winning percentage (.649 to .640), but they've gone just 23-20 since that hot start. All-time great team? Let's see if they're the best team of 2016.
