Rhys Millen’s run up Pikes Peak

Giant freaking asterisk here, this run did set a record. Not that it matters since this is the first year the course was all tarmac. Of course it’s going to be faster up the mountain. duh. So the time here means nothing. I’m not even going to consider it a record. The old time on the gravel is still the record, this can start a new period of record keeping. It would be like if I invented a new event for the Olympics the couch sitting contest and won it the first year. Yes technically that’s a world record, but it means nothing.

With all that said, cars flying up Pike’s Peak are still pretty cool and on board footage is even cooler so here’s Rhys Millen taken his Hyundai Genesis Coupe up the mountain.
