This year they expect to beak records at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, let’s see what the Colorado mountain weather bring to the race. Of course you will have to wait till race day to discover this. Not to mention the climate changes they will experience on the way to the top. We are expecting some light rain here in Colorado, so this could mean some snow at the top. “The fun of it all!” Here is a quick excerpt PPIHC website: The “9 Minute Club,” all five competitors who have broken the once elusive 10-minute barrier will be in the race; Rhys Millen (9:46.164 in 2012), Romain Dumas (9:46.181 in 2012), Nobuhiro Tajima (9:51.278 in 2011), Carlin Dunne (9:52.819 in 2012) and Greg Tracy (9:58.262 in 2012).

But based on practice and testing times this week, it may result in the first sub-nine minute mark and new records in almost every division on the fully paved 12.42 mile course with 156 turns if the mountain and the weather cooperate with race organizers.
Sunday’s forecast for Colorado Springs itself is a high of 82 degrees with a 10% chance of precipitation, but that’s for the city, not the course, which begins at 9,390 feet and ends at 14,110 feet at the mountain’s finish line.
Fans will recall that the weather at the summit last year chipped in with hail, snow and rain in the late afternoon, with the last few divisions going back down the hill to a new finish line and a shortened circuit.
