Rhys Millen's Pikes Peak World Record Attempt - Click above to watch the video after the jump

While we didn't know if anyone would break the ten minute barrier at Pikes Peak this year, we did know one thing: Red Bull was going to make an awesome video. Rhys' video of his record-breaking run in the 2WD Time Attack class in 2009 was pretty spectacular, so we had high expectations. This year the energy drink giant had cameras placed just about everywhere on Rhys Millen's Hyundai PM580, and it even brought along a helicopter to get some awesome aerial shots.

While neither Millen or anyone else broke the record in this year's Race To The Clouds, the resulting footage is still definitely worth a watch. You can watch the entire video after the jump.

      Great footage. Wish someone would do the same sort of thing with Nobuhiro Tajima, I've always wanted to see in car footage of his runs.

      I really think Porsche will be doing some sort of video. I noticed a chopper following the GT3 up the hill in some of the spectator videos - just like with the Rhys run.

      I was wondering when they were going to release this...

      That was an awesome race to watch (Both in person and this RedBull video) I was standing right at the corner near the start where Rhys had to come to a near complete stop and shift back to 1st to get moving again. Good God that thing ripped out of there in anger once he was back on the throttle!

      Who cares, he lost. Why is autoblog focusing on Millen/Hyundai so hard, why not the other competitors, or perhaps even the winner?

        We would love to post content on other competitors, but it can be tough to find. Not everyone makes a video of their run, at least to the extent that Red Bull did. If you can find any other noteworthy videos from Pikes Peak this year then let us know.
