Come Take a Ride on a Record-Breaking Climb up Pikes Peak

This video of Rennie Scaysbrook (resident fast man at Cycle News) racing at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is insane and must be watched, as his Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory summits in a time of 9:44.963.

This video showcases what it takes to set a new Heavyweight motorcycle record and the fastest time ever for a motorcycle at the iconic Race to the Clouds.

Be sure to watch all the way to the end though, because Rennie’s elation at finishing the race in record time is easily worth the price of admission.

Of note, the first person to congratulate Rennie on his run was previous Heavyweight record-holder Chris Fillmore, who made his own history that day, setting a new Lightweight record and briefly holding the distinction of having all three motorcycle class records at the same time.

We are super proud of Rennie’s accomplishment at Pikes Peak this year, and while it is still painful to think of the loss of Carlin Dunne in this year’s race, we know he would have been proud of Rennie as well.

Rennie has dedicated this video to his friend, Carlin.
