Forget the first minute or so of idleness and tune in from 1:25 and watch as Moran wrestles his Gould GR61X NME up the snaking mountain pass in Gubbio, Italy. In footage so fast it appears sped up, marvel with us as he smoothly navigates the countless curves and cambers. There’s no margin for error here, nor any sense of self-preservation apparently. And it makes for the most incredible watching.
This seems like the fastest hillclimb runs we’ve ever seen, but somehow it only placed 10th on the day, with Moran achieving a 1:23.47 run up the 3.31km (2.06mile) course, almost six seconds off the winning pace. He was, however, silver in his class.
