You'd think so, wouldn't you.
ProCycling (the magazine) did a ranking of climbs a couple of years ago, and Genting was in the top-5. Almost every pro that has done it says it's incredibly hard: For one it's rather long (especially for that time of the year), and, more importantly, it's in Malaysia. Tropical temperatures, VERY humid conditions.
Don't underestimate Genting.
Always looking forward to this race, where the Europeans mix with the Asians, and some Africans come to play as well.
@simo1733: I can see him doing a top-10, but I can also see him being completely invisible. Let's hope for the best.
