Size Matters — Mike Ryan. So is it possible to drift a semi-truck Freightliner, like Ken Block?? Pikes Peak Hill Climb Champion Mike Ryan makes it look easy.
Drifting a high horsepower 3,000 pound sports car…easy.
Try it in a 10,000 pound purpose built Semi Truck….not so easy.
Racer / Stunt Man Mike Ryan has driven this truck to 12 Pikes Peak Hill Climb Championships and decided it’s time to show his skills and the capabilities of his race truck on the original Gymkhana location at El Toro Marine Base in CA ala Ken Block.

Special thanks to all of the crew at Bandito Brothers and Greg Tracy, Ducati Multistrada Pikes Peak racer and 6 time winner. Greg Tracy is also member of Team Hot Wheels and holds a Guinness World Record for the Double Loop Dare held at X Games in 2012. All of them helped make this production happen and without their help, the video would not have been possible.
Also huge props to Contour Cameras and Tank Farm Clothing.
