Gigs 98 did a stage similar to that but it finished at Montgevenre instead.malakassis said:This is going to be a very long day.
There is more than 125 km of climbing to be done, with an elevation gain registered over 8000m.
is this race design stuff somehow meant to be realistic or just some random chains of HC climbs? have you ever ridden 4000D+ in a race tempo? or 5500 like the otztaler radmarathon? 9000D+ in a 3 week stage RACE is humanly impossible. think about the sprinters. whats the sense in this? cut roselend and iseran and it looks interesting finish but hardly aso would do.
