Climb aboard as Rhys Millen makes his way up Pikes Peak – Click above to watch video after the jump

Rhys Millen put in a heroic effort at the 2011 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The brakes on his Hyundai-powered RMR PM580 decided to give up before he did, which makes his 10:09.242 that much more amazing. Are you curious what it would be like to drive that beast up the Colorado mountain? You're in luck, because Rhys and his team slapped a few cameras on the car.

We're treated to a forward-facing shot, as well as footage trained on Millen's mug. The strain of pushing his rig up the mountain is evident, as is the frustration with his replacement transmission and terror supplied by his lack of brakes. Apparently the original video was switched to private, so we found a clip that features the forward-facing shot only.

Click past the jump to watch Rhys Millen battle both the mountain and his machine for just over 10 minutes.
