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.
