We rode up that thing before the race and waited about 1/4 mile up from where that guy was tacking all over the road.I climbed it in my triple and it was tough. The lead rider,(Lang), and most of the peloton went by so fast we couldn't see the gearing. They were flying up that stupid steep grade, we could hardly recognize the riders. Of course, there were hundreds of people screaming and moving around on the road. I had never seen anything like it, those guys are truly amazing. When we rode up people were cheering me and a couple even pushed me up. Way cool day. I want to see more pros climb hills.
