THE ready-to-race DNA of KTM motorcycles were put to test the brave and skillful motorcycle enthusiasts during the recent Dukehana in the Philippines at the Circuit Makati Parking Grounds.
Dukehana is a motorcycle time trial sport where riders compete to maneuver through a paved course restricted by traffic cones and other skill-testing obstacles in the shortest time. Participants’ riding skills were faced with challenges like reversals, 180-degree spins, 360-degree spins, parking boxes and figure 8s.
The fastest rider with the least number of penalties or who did not set any penalty was adjudged the winner.
The first-ever Dukehana in Manila was highly anticipated by everyone, including amateur and veteran motorcycle riders to test and challenge their skills.
Luisito Sta. Ana beat the competition as he navigated his Duke 200 through a challenging street course to bag the title as overall Luzon leg champion of the first ever KTM Dukehana in the country. Other winners were Van Ruedas, second and Iraq Bauzon, third.
Aside from the Luzon leg, two more legs will be held for motorcycle riders in Mindanao and Visayas, respectively in Davao on April 28 and Cebu on June 2. The overall winner with the fastest time will represent the Philippines in the Dukehana Asia Finals before the end of 2018 and will compete against other Asian champions, including those from Thailand, China and Taiwan
