I walk up all three everyday and that's rubbish. Montrose is pushing 10%, University Avenue is probably 5-7% and Byres road is not even 5%. Montrose is where the split happened in the womens race.Rajna31 said:I've walked up Montrose Street a few times and even though it's not perfectly comfortable for a walk, it's practically flat in cycling terms, even Byres Road and University Avenue(roads that I used daily) have more elevation but it's still remarkable that he could attack Stannard, Millar and Kennaugh on any terrain.
I really wish they did this last year, they practically went right by my former student residence near Kelvingrove Park
Well done Cav, I guess the climbs were just to short to shift him, I really thought a guy like Millar or Stannard would get a gap and go on to win.
The competition wasn't very strong. Stannard and Fenn were out front on the first lap, joined by the other four as chasers the next lap and everyone else was already an already ran at 28km. That said, the guys Cav hung with should have been able to drop him, that was a very good performance.
