Thanks for the image with percentage notes Curtis!
And thanks for the image with text Victor. Very funny but really, it wasn't quite that bad. I'm sure the tail-wind helped me too.
Actually, except for the fact that it was a lot more straight road, the effort was not much different from the Ski-Lift climb on Mt. Baldy road. In any case, the Ski-Lift climb was excellent training for Sierra Road.
