IRT Deadliest Roads

About the show

Truck drivers, some of whom have appeared on the History series "Ice Road Truckers," take their extreme driving skills to much warmer climates, but the working conditions are no less treacherous in this "IRT" spinoff. In trying to prove they're the best drivers in the world, the truckers head to India to take on the extreme mountain roads of the Himalayas, where they have to navigate some of the oldest and deadliest highways in existence. The series also showcases the truckers hauling cargo in Bolivia and to sites high in Peru's Andes mountain range.

Death Race

The rookie team of Tim and Tino are feeling more confident than ever, and are out to prove they can drive with the veterans by challenging trucker Hugh Rowland to a race down the Death Road. But Hugh isn't ready to hand over his title as "fastest man," and is forced to make up lost time and miles on one of the deadliest roads on the planet. Lisa Kelly settles in with new partner G.W. Boles, doing whatever they can to deliver their load - local crops and the farmers that grew them - to market in time.

The Flattest Place On Earth

Taking a break from the high-mountain passes, Lisa and G.W. take a load of live animals over the world's largest salt flat, where they'll have to rely on a faulty GPS and a bit of luck to find their way across one of the flattest places on Earth. Tim and Tino take on the death road, and Tim's out for a new, high-adrenaline experience, finding there's plenty of room to ride on the roof of the truck. Hugh's gone about just as far as he can, too, finally learning that you can't deliver your load any faster if you don’t keep your truck on the road.

Oxygen Required

All three trucking teams get a little entertainment in on the side when truckers Tim Zickuhr and G.W. Boles show what they've got in a Bolivian Cholita Wrestling ring. Back on the road, it's the team's last chance to prove they have what it takes to conquer the death road before moving on to Peru. Lisa again relegates G.W. to the spotter's role, still hesitant to let him take the wheel. As Tino and Tim climb higher and higher into the mountains, their emergency tank of oxygen comes in handy. Hugh struggles with the altitude and attitude trying to get his truck through tight squeezes and narrow roads. Finally, all the drivers meet up for dinner and recount their weeks on Bolivia's Death Road.

The Hangover

Lisa Kelly and G.W. take on the same road that almost sent G.W. over the edge the day before, but now, with Lisa behind the wheel and a heavier load, the same mountain’s rigged with demolition dynamite and ready to explode. Hugh gets his old truck back and hauls a load of sheep through the dark Peruvian night, where sharp switchbacks and cliffs come out of nowhere. A rough day for Tino means partner Tim is forced to drive and maneuver on his own, and Tim learns how quickly he can go from “hero” to “zero.”

Dead Man'S Canyon

Trucker Hugh Rowland takes on an old donkey trail with some dynamite during his nearly impossible climb into the Andes. The trucking team of Lisa Kelly and G.W. Boles drive head-first into “Dead Nun Canyon,” praying their truck isn’t too big for the miles and miles of hand-carved tunnels in front of them. Tim Zickuhr and Tino Rodriguez aim to take on the canyons as well... if their mishaps don’t stop them cold again.

Landslide!
