Rhys Millen was unable to put a stop to Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima, who definitely deserves the overall victory at the 2010 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb after getting to the 14,110-foot summit in only 10 minutes and 11.490 seconds.

This is Tajima’s fifth straight win on the Colorado mountain. Tajima’s win may be impressive but it fails to topple his 2007 record of 10:01.408. Like what he had in 2009, Tajima drove a customized machine, which bears a slight similarity to the stock Suzuki SX4. The 2010 model got several aerodynamic enhancements and had the power of the twin-turbocharged 3.1-liter V-6 boosted by 25hp to 910hp.
