Pikes Peak Hill Climb Fan Fest

When: Fri., June 25, 5-10 p.m. 2010

Chances are that most readers won't be trekking up to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on Sunday. Having been to the oldest race west of the Mississippi River more than 20 times, I'd highly recommend it. But if you need more convincing, go downtown to Tejon Street today for the Hill Climb's annual Fan Fest, from 5 to 10 p.m., spreading out from Colorado Avenue to Bijou Street (ppihc.com, free). You'll see actual cars and motorcycles (along with their drivers) that will race to the summit, and you can meet pace-car driver John Andretti — whose legendary twin brother Mario is a former Pikes Peak winner. There's a firefighter chili cookoff, the Denver Broncos cheerleaders, Red Bull motorcycle jumpers and a Budweiser beer garden. They'll also be selling tickets to the race Sunday, if you're hooked. — Ralph Routon
