Pride says ride. Humility says train and and then ride. A week and a half isn't enough time to train. Better to train and ride it well then ride too soon and be off the bike with injury.

i'm with you. He may not get injured physically, but what's the point of suffering through a ride? Just to see that you can suffer, perhaps. I say if your training says that you can, then by all means go for it. Otherwise work towards it; the hills will all still be there next year.
