First UTV Ever to Race Up Pikes Peak - Video



In the world of Powersports, it seems as though it’s getting harder and harder to perform something new or compete in an event that hasn’t already been done a million times. Whether it is a unique trick, particular racing style or a specific event, chances are someone has already been there and done that. One would think that is would especially hold true when referring to the second oldest race in American history, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Man and machine have been participating in this historic race since 1916 and it is second only in age to the Indianapolis 500. Well after more than 8,700 machines have raced up this monumental peak, we can now say that Doug Siddens in his 2009 Polaris RZR-S has accomplished a new first and can be added to the elite who have conquered the same feat!

Competing in the 88th race to the clouds in the Exhibition Powersport Class June 27th, 2010 will mark the first time a UTV has ever participated in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. This is a huge step forward for the UTV platform and further cements this Powersports presence in the world of racing! Don’t worry though, you don’t have to wait until June 27th to see Doug sprint up the hill in his RZR as you can watch a teaser video of his first official practice session below.


Find out more about the build and mods that went into this hill climbing beast here: http://www.rzrforums.net/pits/27348-...ihc-build.html

Re: First UTV Ever to Race Up Pikes Peak - Video

Thanks for all the kind words! I was kind of stunned when I finally finished editing the video as to how well it turned out.

I'm really excited for race day as I've got some new tweaks that I will be doing to the RZR this week that should help me reach my new goal of hitting 12's

Will do! There's a chance I might also have a helicopter lined up for some good shots up the hill
