In Episode 6 of the MOTR Podcast, I sit down with Rennie Scaysbrook, the road test editor at Cycle News magazine, and also one of this year’s competitors at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
In this short show, Rennie and I discuss what it is like to ride on “America’s Mountain” and what goes into creating a successful Pikes Peak racing program.
Of note, Rennie is switching machinery for the 2019 race, campaigning this year on a modified Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory, which he was gracious enough to let me take for a spin. It’s a beast.
With the Race to the Clouds just a few days away now, we thought this would be a good primer into the event. I hope you enjoy it.
