This Sunday, Pikes Peak will be conquered by a bunch of machines as part of the legendary International Hill Climb. Those of you that can’t make it out the event in person can check it out live online. Unlike my usual intermissions, this ain’t free (assuming you want to watch it live). Click here to get access to the live stream.
If you need to get in the mood, here’s a couple of quick videos from the company that’s putting on the stream:
If you’re a newbie to all of this and need someone to root for, then I ask you cheer on my buddy Rennie Scaysbrook over at Cycle News. He’s qualified on the pole in Heavyweight (though Carlin Dunne is right behind him and Chris Fillmore is staggeringly close despite the fact that he’s on a Middleweight with KTM’s 790 prototype).
Rennie and the Cycle News team have been uploading videos throughout the process that are worth watching as well. Details on the KTM 1290 Super Duke R racer:
