Great. Just **** great... :rolleyes:


That's one hell of a great team. Not so many countries that can beat this amount of (climbing) capabilities..

This is a great team if you're having to climb Alpe d'Huez four times. For Bergen, it couldn't be much worse.

Don't know the exact percentages, but it's the old route which is known as the easiest ascent.

I thought it was gonna have six stages?

For an early season race, the climbs are pretty good. But I'm sure Colombia can provdide better options if they wanted to make something serious.

First stage is a circuit race in Popayan. You can't draw a profile from that information. ;)

Sure you could, but for most WT this will be the first race of their season, so there is no reason for that. It's also one of the first races on the national calendar.

Very interesting race DNP. It will be 2.1. I wonder who will go to the race.

2.3 million of dollars for the costs of organizing it.
They already collected 1.3 million.

The Buga stage is a KILLER!! el Boqueron is a tough SoB - the same goes for the Manizales stage- which at first glance seems to be using either Minas or Letras - both monsters!!

There are changes due to hotel limitations in Popayán
The first 3 stages change:
1- Palmira circuit (94Kms) Flat
2- Palmira - Santander de Quilichao - Palmira (183 Kms). Real distance is around 140Kms so they are doing something else. Should be flat, though
3- Palmira-Riopaila-Buga 160kms
4- Buga-Pereira-Dos Quebradas-El Boquerón (El Tambo) 155kms
5- Pereira-Cartago-Armenia-Salento 184kms
6- Armenia-La Tebaida-Pereira-Manizales 191kms

Right next to the same cities:
Cali (or Palmira) Km18
Armenia: La Línea
Manizales: Letras

And between Pereira and Manizales they could have designed something as crazy as

...but yes, who is going to start the season with such climbs?

That looks awesome! But indeed not many riders would look forward to that so early in the season, so if they want to get a bit more of an international field (which I think they are succeeding in) they cant do something like that.

OR a tough race that can be used by high profile riders to build up form ;) I remember the good old days when Colombia had the Clasico RCN in the 80's, when the likes of Hinault, Roche, Fignon, Kelly, etc. came to ride it in order to get some high altitude training block, while being competitive...... hope this new race lives up to those standards :)
