Pikes Peak 2013

About a month ago, a caravan of some fast SL,UTs rallied out to Colorado Springs for the first annual Pikes Peak downhill race to compete with the world’s best. Working with a legendary race course reaching speeds of about 55mph through banked hairpin turns, each rider was put to the test. After I was knocked out in the first round of racing I had the opportunity to walk down the course and take some pictures of the remaining race heats and practice runs; here’s some of what turned out (the rest can be viewed here).
