I finally made it up Pikes Peak and it was everything I thought it would be.
The Mile Marker 7 is where the Hillclimb starts(I think) and those skid marks were about 500 feet after. Rookies. Didn’t see many others the rest of the way up the mountain with the exception of the switchbacks and those looks to be from oversteer.

Watch out for the bike tours... they will make you ride your brakes all the way down.
