Pikes Peak Cloud Racers

  • By cannonball

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb celebrated its 100th birthday last weekend with a field of entrants that the pioneers of the event could barely have imagined.

 

The race snakes up a single road over 12.42 miles of tarmac to the summit of Pikes Peak, some 14,115ft above sea level. And once a year, a bunch of hill-climb addicts pit themselves and their motorcycles, sidecars, quads, cars and trucks in the Race to the Clouds. It’s America’s version of our TT – except they have cliff edges, altitude sickness, snow, and bears to contend with!
