THE BROADMOOR PIKES PEAK INTERNATIONAL HILL CLIMB OVERVIEW
Brave drivers have been racing to the top of Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain since 1916 in the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb "Race to the Clouds”. The second oldest motor sports race in America has been a long-standing tradition in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region.

It is truly like no other race. What takes an average person around 1-3 hours to drive, takes these professional daredevils around ten minutes.
