Yes, I appreciate that it might be a bit high but I thought that it needed something unique and the fact is that they aren't climbing from 0 to 3700 but from around 2000 to 3700. If anyone gets used to the Gangtok atmosphere other parts of Sikkim aren't all that daunting barring possibly the Kanchenjunga national park side.rgmerk said:Ramjambunath, loving your race design so far.
I appreciate this is a fantasy exercise, but even so it makes it more interesting if the stages are kept realistic.
As such, I'm wondering if a climb topping out at 3700 meters is too high, given the riders haven't been acclimatizing for weeks at high altitude. Sure, it's fine for riders to struggle athletically, but it probably wouldn't be a good look to have them being carted off to hospital en masse with altitude sickness.
Could you maybe top out the stage earlier, at around the 3000 metre mark?
Shame, because that scenery isn't half spectacular!
