i love the hills myself, but i can't say i'm good at them. i'm convinced that hill work is mostly mental toughness. you have to stand up to them as if they just insulted your mother and then conquer them.

My approach to hills has always been to "sneak up on em and hit em on the head"

I have explosive power and vast amounts of endurance while shopping at the local bike shop. And the last stage I won was at the Disneyland Sightseeing tour.

Does that count?
