This episode is a conversation with Middleweight and Vintage Class racer, David Rutherford. David recounts his 2014 run for glory up on the cruelest mountain in all of professional motorsport. We also hear a bit about the storied history of America's 2nd oldest motor race, hanging with the lad from Lincolnshire, Guy Martin and the unique challenge of racing against the clock while climbing nearly 5,000 feet in 12.4 miles, all the way to the 14,000 feet summit of Pikes Peak. And of course, The Bird and Poet kick it all off with some bits and bobs about the passion we all share for two-wheeled adventure of the internal combustion persuasion.
