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.

Lisa Vs The Devils Bridge

After two veteran truckers give up and head home, Hugh Rowland and Lisa Kelly are forced to take on the Death Road without spotters. Lisa moves to the Southern Death Road, where she faces her biggest challenge so far - alone. The rookie team of Tim and Tino have to navigate treacherous cliffs as well as tight fits in town, where navigating around cars and buildings may prove as challenging as dodging landslides, all to get their load to a community in need.

The Replacement Trucker

Trucker Lisa Kelly gets a look at her new partner, Texan long-hauler G.W. Boles, and G.W. gets a look at some of the deadliest roads on the planet in his first outing as Lisa’s spotter. Hugh Rowland, still trucking solo, does his best not to play demolition derby in a local market with his giant truck. Rookie Tim Zickuhr gets his first shot at the Death Road, and with rookie spotter Tino Rodriguez riding shotgun, the young team struggles to keep their over-sized load from falling off the truck, or worse, pulling them off the cliff.

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 three teams of truckers leave Bolivia in their dust as they make tracks for Peru’s deadly Andes Mountains passageways. Lisa Kelly finally hands the reins over to G.W. Boles, and he’s ready to prove he’s got what it takes on some of the worst roads on the planet. A road race between Hugh Rowland and the rookie team of Tim Zickuhr and Tino Rodriguez leaves both teams on the side of the road with mechanical failures, but while Hugh’s able to find a quick fix, “T and T” are left stranded overnight in the desert.
