The annual Pike’s Peak race to the top was this past weekend and there was a huge record broken this year. “Monster” Tajima has been running at this event for many many years and all of the hard work finally paid off with him breaking the 10 minute mark in his HIGHLY modified Suzuki SX4. His official time was 9:51 and its really hard to believe considering its a 12+ mile uphill course. Now, I know there’s probably going to be a very artistic video released on this feat, but I really like this one. It for one, shows a good sense of speed and just how incredibly dangerous this climb is. Not to mention, how difficult the road is, going to pavement to dirt at any given time. I have to say, I held my breath every time he drifted near the edge.
Such an amazing run.
