Heinous climbs ahead

July 11, 2008

The peloton is approaching the first category 2 climb.

Climbs can be one of SIX levels. 5 is the easiest and they get more difficult all the way up to 1. THEN HC or beyond category is the most difficult.

I’m going to have to go silent for a little bit because I fear the peloton and the entire race will get ripped apart by the next two climbs and I don’t want to spoil your enjoyment of the race.

Back in a bit OR look for the final wrap up around 9PM EST.

**Right now – before the climb – there are 24 riders at about 30 seconds ahead of the main peloton.**
