Pro Racer and Hollywood Stuntman, Mike Ryan, decided to accept the challenge of wrestling his purpose built Freightliner Cascadia up the Mt. Washington Auto Road in the 2011 "Climb To The Clouds" in New Hampshire.
This video feature shows the amazing talent and commitment it takes to pilot a 10,000 lbs. Semi Truck with 1,950 twin turbocharged horsepower up an extremely steep and narrow mountain road.
Mike's time of 8:02.65 to the top was the 27th fastest time to the summit and was a jaw dropping experience to all who witnessed the Gulf Oil liveried Semi streaking up the mountain.
With multiple on board cameras placed in dramatic locations around the Big Rig...ride along and experience the sights and sounds of a full speed race run up this treacherous road.

Incredible Stunt Driving...Car Drives on Two Wheels Thru a Shop !
Just two days after Rob Dyrdek "Kick Flipped" this very car at Magic
Mountain California for his show Fantasy Factory on MTV...one of the
stuntmen involved in setting up the ramps and car, James A Smith, thought
it would be a fun challenge to pilot the brand new Chevrolet Sonic through
this working fabrication shop. And not just any shop...this is JEM FX,
Hollywoods number one big time Effects power house. Run by Elia Popov and
his team of mega talented engineers and fabricators, JEM FX creates the
practical magic we see on screen.
So when a stunt driver decides to throw it down by saying he can drive
through the shop while everyone keeps working, plus not wreck the car that
needs to go on display right after, there was a lot of pressure on James.
It only took 2 takes and we locked this stunt in. Much to the amazement of
everyone in the shop.

Climb - Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a Monster
Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it
races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the
"Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time,
Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to
claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th
birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching
the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in
the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill
Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of
all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a
Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent
extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface
on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel
than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of
their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's
race car helped push the driver forward.
