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.

They already collected 1.3 million.
