The following is from Pikes Peak…
Almost 50 years ago, a talented young California desert racer and professional dirt tracker named Eddie Mulder was making a name for himself in a big way.
Now, he’s back at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb as one of the event’s icons.
Mulder, nine-time champion and world record holder in the second oldest motorsport race in America, will preside over the historic event as Grand Marshall of the Motorcycle Division.
He’s a legend in the sport, inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999 after winning five AMA Grand National trophies during his career. The 2007 and 2008 Pikes Peak champion also became one of the leading stunt drivers in Hollywood for movies and television productions.
