I never checked this thread out before, but the work of some posters here is very impressive.
thanks Craig!craig1985 said:Well done Kvinto on your tour, looks like a good race and with plenty of opportunities for attacking riding.

Thank you!!Libertine Seguros said:I use mapmyride.com. It has its flaws, but so do all of these things.
I tend to map my route out on there (manually if need be - some roads and passes that don't appear as roads on google maps - such as Anglirú, Peña Cabarga and the Muro di Montelupone - need to be entered this way), then get captures of the route and profile and post them up here.
Because the longer the route gets the more widespread the marker dots, hence the less accurate the climb data, I will recourse to a climbs database like altimetrias.net or climbbybike for more accurate info, or map the climb itself individually on mapmyride to get a more accurate representation if those do not have data available on the climb in question.
Others have different programs they like to use, like gpsies, tracks4bikers and so on, so it's a matter of tinkering around until you find one you're comfortable with.
Yes I know. It is one of him by himself. Clearly zigzagging up the climb because he has put on so much weight while suspended.Libertine Seguros said:
As that video showed, the only riders capable of riding up that thing without any level of zigzagging were Joaquím Rodríguez and Alberto Contador. And besides, given Evans' climbing style out of the saddle appears to be based on trying to see if he can get the drops to touch the road without falling over, I wouldn't be too critical of others zigzaggingauscyclefan94 said:Yes I know.

Is this your Queen stage?Lupetto said:Tour of Japan || Stage 14: Ueda - Mt.Mizugaki, 183 km
Ueda is situated in the east of the Nagano prefecture right in the mountains of the Japanese Alps. From here the race is heading south, easy beginning. The second part of this stage features some serious climbing with three Cat. 1 climbs and a mountain top finish in the border region of the Nagano and Yamanashi prefectures.
Cat. 3 // Route 423 (816m), 7,2k @ 3.9%.
Cat. 3 // Route 141 (1381m), 10k @ 3.3%.
Cat. 2 // Shisenkyo Line (1107m), 8,4 km @ 4.0%.
Cat. 1 // Maiden Lake (1600m), 9,7k @ 5.8%.
Cat. 1 // Mt.Kokushigatake (2333m), 14,5k @ 6%.
Cat. 1 // Mt.Mizugaki (1905m), 9,4k @ 6.8%.
