Goin' Up!


Today is the 87th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb - the second oldest motor sports race in the nation, second only to the Indy 500. Two years ago, Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima (in the photo above) set a world record time with his 10:01.41 ascent of the 12-1/2 mile, 5,000 vertical foot course. Maybe today someone will break the "10 minute" mark....

UPDATE: "Monster" Tajima did win the day -- but his 10:15.37 time means that the 10-minute threshold will stand for another year.

You can now refer to me as Captain Envious... One of these years I'll make it out there to see this thing in person.

Hope you can make it, General of the Hordes! Know that you'll have a place to stay when you come to Central Colorado.
