616 horses versus one snowboard? Pikes Peak International Hill Climb record holder Rhys Millen strapped into a McLaren 12C Spider to take on a descent in the snowy Rocky Mountains – but with a twist. He’d be racing Winter Games medallist Chanelle Sladics on her snowboard down the notoriously treacherous Loveland Pass. Where else has a sign warning of avalanches caused by long-range weaponry? It looked calm on the way up; the way down is a lot different, as the gloves go on and the snow is kicked up. Fire up the video to see the result!

If only McLaren would sponsor Millen's drift program...

For the record, they did not actually race. The snowboarding footage is virtually all inside loveland ski area, not on loveland pass, and the "finish" is no where near where the riding was, or where loveland pass ends. The video is entirely fabricated. Still an entertaining watch.

think about how much that video cost to make, and how boring it was...

They could have made the shred footage look a lot more interesting.

The snowboard footage was on the "pass" all the locals consider the backcountry area the pass. The drive up this road and snowboard in the backcountry there all the time. The ski resort is at the bottom of the east side of the pass

Simply Disappointing

Cool to see that car in the snow but it was stupid. No way there would be a random rainbow box up there. This is worse than the topgear races that I actually like
