Watch: the mountain decides

Hill Climb

Watch the story of record attempts on Pikes Peak and the extreme dangers present on the mountain

Jeremy Hart (TV commentator on WRC, Paris-Dakar and F1) first went to Pikes Peak in 1988, with the rally legend Ari Vatanen – who took him to the summit in his Peugeot on gravel.

The chance to return 30 years on and make a film with three records up for grabs was too good a one to miss out on.

Following Travis Pastrana (Porsche), Romain Dumas (VW) and Rhys Millen (Bentley) – plus US veteran Paul Dallenbach, Jeremy and his team tell the story of their record attempts, the race’s extreme dangers, the omnipresent effect of weather and the race history.
