Cool. A 120 mile long hill.
Looks like another breakaway type day.
That is just painfully long. remember, I'm a flat lander.
I've been on some of these roads. Probably the prettiest countryside I've ever seen. Once they're up on the plateau at Zuoz, it's pretty much flat, then comes a really difficult descent down the Maloja pass (super-tight switchbacks), and then it's really just bombing down to Chiavenna. The other direction--Chiavenna to St. Moritz--is a classic training ride for the locals. Keep your eyes peeled, it's impossibly beautiful.
This will be a sprinters day.
c'mon Cav, get your s#%@ together.
What was with the sprinters teams today? Did the weather put them off that much?
It's extremely difficult and risky to try to catch a break downhill and in the wet, especially on roads like those. I'd say the instinct for self-preservation ruled the day.
