Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Fan Fest

When: Fri., Aug. 10, 5 p.m. 2012

The Waldo Canyon Fire forced its delay, but the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb has arrived at last. And racers will hope to make up, if only a bit, for lost time: This year's event marks the first on an all-asphalt road. The extra grip promises record-breaking speeds, adding a new dimension to the thrills. Hang out downtown (between Colorado Avenue and Bijou Street on Tejon Street, 5 to 10 p.m., usacracing.com/ppihc) for the free Fan Fest today, boasting live bands, a chili cook-off, motorcycle jumpers and more. Then head up the mountainside tomorrow, camp out (with a $100 permit), and enjoy the race ($40/adv, $50/day of) all day Sunday. — Jeff Koch
