Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2016 - 94th Running

Pikes Peak International Hill Climb
1631 Mesa Avenue Suite E Colorado Springs, CO 80906 United States


Description

The PPIHC is a race ran on a 12.42 mile (19.99 kilometer) course on Pikes Peak - America's Mountain, that begins at 9,390 feet (2,862.07 meters) above sea-level and finishes at the 14,115 foot (4,302.25 meter) Summit of spectacular Pikes Peak – Americas Mountain. As the drivers climb toward the Summit, the thin air slows reflexes and saps muscle strength in addition to robbing internal combustion engines of up to 30% of the power they were capable of at the Start Line. Competitors and vehicles must be in top shape and condition simply to finish, let alone win. This year’s race features five divisions and seven classes of motorcycles/quads, and four divisions and eight classes of cars/trucks challenging the fully paved Pikes Peak Highway.
