Who will win????

I just read this in cyclingnews.com:

"US Postal's Jose Luis Rubiera has accepted the challenge from former World Marathon Champion Martín Fíz to race up l'Angliru, the most notorious climb in this year's Vuelta. The race will take place on the toughest 6.5 kilometres of the climb, which should reduce the clear advantage that Rubiera will have. The pair will meet in Bilbao to discuss the details of the challenge."

So .... who do you think will win and why?????

I think David Millar will blow them both away but he'll drop out of the race 1 meter from the finish thereby disqualifying himself.

Only if it would be televised on OLN! That would be sweet.

I would love to try to climb that thing one day.
