Wow!

The man can drive, and what a road. Makes me miss the days of WRC on speedvision.

I've been there for the Hill Climb before that middle section was paved. I hope they don't ever pave any more of it. That is an amazing motorsports spectacle and runs from before dawn till they get finished. All types of vehicles...it's amazing. Put it on your must do list before you croak if you are a motorsports enthusiast.

I also climbed up the east face of Pikes Peak from Manitou Springs to the summit and back down. It is much steeper than the road that comes up the northwest side where they race. The east face climb is about 13 miles each way and we did it in 3 days (made a base camp part way up) and took our time and enjoyed the climb. You can nearly see Kansas from the summit.

The tree line is around 12,000 feet if you are watching for it in the video. After the second stretch of pavement runs out that car isn't nearly as punchy or powerful as at the start. The thin air also doesn't pull as much heat out of any of your heat exchangers as you get higher.

Edit: Yes the BOV was very irritating when they stuck the mic right next to it.
