Stage 3

Today’s stage was meant to be relatively straightforward on paper. A 90km stage with just under 3,700m climbing, made up of 2 main climbs, one double peak taking you to 1,500m, down a bit then back up to 1,700m, then a long descent before the big 1,800m climb to 2,500m or so. 988 more words

IRONBIKE ’14

Stage 2

Today ended up being a crazy crazy stage, bit of an epic as it was (140km, 4,300m ish climbing) but throw in having to ride a final 700m climb having ridden 90km and climbed over 3,200m already INTO a thundercloud made things a little silly. 930 more words
