In the Cat 3s, a brave solo rider countered as an earlier break was caught a few KMs before the last trip up the KOM and stayed away by 5 - 10 seconds. Even without the s-show that occurred behind...

Apparently this is now the face I make when I'm climbing. Not sure when it started. Last 500m of the climb at Killington on Sunday. Ended up 5th on the stage with s.t. as 2nd - 4th and 5th on GC (and...

How does the second day of KSR usually play out? Do groups frequently get away and stay away on the first climb or does most of the field tend to stay together until the final climb?

The race director had posted results earlier this week, but took them down saying there was an issue with them that he was resolving with the results vendor. I haven't heard anything since.
