Freaking unbelievable... Hats off to all the participants...
This year it was pretty much the same as the stage 16 (Mourenx to Pau) and the winner did it in 5:22:09... He also won in 2002... You can read about it here:
Simply amazing... ;)

Good article. That blew the doors off the Christian Science Monitor article where they sent the fat out-of-shape guy to do one slope.

Yeah, I read a similar article on BBC News where an average cycling hack (like you and me) rode up to Pau, the hors categorie climb Hincapie won over. With scenery like this (http://www.cyclingnews.com/photos/2005/tour05/?id=features/letape05/corniche), I'm going to have to consider giving this a look.
